Spellbinders Explore Beyond Challenge!

Good Mornings all :) 

Waiting for me in my inbox this morning was a lovely newsletter from the gorgeous folks at Spellbinders!  I always get a little excited when I get their emails. And wow!  Am I excited! 

Have you checked out the 
No ??? My goodness, this just will not do!
Get your gorgeous booty over there and check this out {HERE}!

Still here ? 
Maybe this will get your tail moving .... 
There is a $5,000 Grand Prize Package 
from Spellbinders and cross promotional partners!

Oh yeah! .... There you go! lol 

 Anyways, Guess you can tell what got me and Mojo inspired today :)
So photos ... here we go!

 Okies,  I got side tracked again! 
This started as a card and then I had this bright brainwave to throw in a matching box as well :$  *hey you know me, this stuff happens lol* 

 Close up the card! - Yummy Graphic 45 papers from the Playtimes Past Collection.
*Yes I raided my stash of precious papers*

 Side view - All the layers have been popped up on pop dots.
And I went the distance and did the inside the same too!

 The train charm I pulled from my stash and I used the Spellbinders Floral Flourish with some tricky cutting to make the smoke from the trains chimney.  I used Core'dinations and with some sanding, tried for a black / white smokey look.

 Close up of the box. - I followed the same layout design as the card. 
Inside is a little chocolate nestled among some fluffy wool.

 Box - Side view.

Okies, being honest, 
I don't think I stand a chance in a blue moon of winning this competition 
but I had to give it a try as without an entry, 
well, I really don't stand a chance at all then! 

My Spellbinders stash has been growing of late and for this set I pulled out my new Fleur De Lis Squares, Large and Small Squares and the Floral Flourish.  The Graphic 45- Playtimes past papers matched beautifully with the ribbon I got from my Really Reasonable Ribbon - ribbon club and the train charm has been sitting in the draw for a long while now that I should stop hording it!  The pearls are from Flourish With a Bling. 

 I really enjoyed today just sitting and creating , 
so much so, that I think I might just be able to squeeze 
in another creation this afternoon! 

Thanks for calling past to see me :)
