Sweet Sugar Challenge - Not a Card!

The challenge at Sweet Sugar was to create something other than a card. Well I thought this was an original idea but I've just popped back and seen that Deb on the design team did exactly the same thing! Sorry Deb, I promise I didn't copy!! Well, I've had a little box hanging around my craft corner for so long and it was crying out to be altered! It once held marshmallows and came in a hot chocolate gift set, needless to say that the marshmallows are long gone :0)
I covered the box in some pretty pink dotty paper, coloured maggie in with distress inks and added some flowers and ribbon. Like Deb I thought the stamp would be perfect for the saying "saving for a rainy day". I don't know if many pennies will go in there as they all seem to get spent at Funky Kits!
Thanks for looking, I hope everyone has enjoyed the sun today!
Love Becky xx
