The Art of Living

Today I will be sharing my creation to meet two of my DT obligations. First of all it is Tuesday which means it is a new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday; which is......Easel or Box Easel Card. Plus this week we are celebrating TTT turning ONE; so there is a whole lot of prizes to be won(about £200 worth)!
Today is also the last day of Sneak Peeks for Paper Makeup Stamps and tomorrow is the HOP and Release!  I really enjoyed making this creation and you can see an easy to follow tutorial HERE on how to make this box.

This word art is from PMS and I truly like it, Love the meaning and the bold ART word and even that little swirl...oh so cute! I have made it my focal point and feels that it gives that WOW effect on it's own. 
 Here is a straight on view of the card portion of this Box.
My Tip for this week is: Use your imperfect stamping to make a flower; here I have used one that I stamped and it smeared. So I simply inked up the edges and added a pearl in the center. Goes perfectly!
The pin I made myself and that big button easel stopper is actually an old earring:0) and it sits o top of a black velvet flower.

I would like to enter this project in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - (August) Easel Card
Craft Your Passion - Flowers
Incy Wincy Designs - Make Your Own Flowers
House of Gilli - Easel Card with Flowers
