Fry box

I tried the fry box die I recently bought, and made treat boxes. I love this "QUEEN FOR A DAY" stamp!

I sponged the bottom half of the fry boxes.

I snipped the flag stamp images, and placed them on the front of the boxes.

PPA261: A Sketch Challenge

This card is for my mom in Japan.
It turned out to look like a Japanese summer kimono pattern, and I'm pleased with the results.
