Anything goes at Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.

Our theme for the next 2 weeks is Anything Goes.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...

I made a lovely set of milk carton style boxes with their own carrier following a project on the Downton Abbey cd. I used pearlescent card for the base card. The paper is J'Adore by first edition. All distressing has been done with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink. 
I used tattered lace and spellbinder dies to decorate the boxes, adding ribbon, pearls and bows to the carrier and pegs...

All the materials I used have been in my stash for ages so it was great to find a project to use some of these up, especially the little pegs.

I made these for my best friend Sue as part of her 50th birthday present and I filled both boxes with handmade bows, tied with my Embellishment Attic bow maker. She was thrilled to bits with it. I will certainly be making more of these boxes, they were really simple to make.

I hope you'll join us. Remember Anything goes!

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thank you so much for visiting. I hope I'll see you again soon.
