Ahoy Friend!

Join us this week at Delightful Challenges 
for a color challenge!

This week at Digital Delights we have a color challenge.  Your project must have Purple, orange, green and black and that's it!!

My project is a secret treasure trove hidden inside a normal looking box.  I found this design at  

I used the Pirate set from Digital Delights and an amazing Graphic 45 paper that has design on both sides which really helps this project.

Of course a box like this has four sides and a top. This provides plenty of space to put all the cute little images from the Pirate set.

I made a flower for the lid using EK Success Retro Flower punch and the leaves were cut using Spellbinders Leaves. I added a little sparkle to the petals with Stickles but you can't really tell by the picture.

Card Recipe:
Paper: Graphic 45, SU Orange and an older green
Markers: Copics of course - BV08, 13, YG93, 95, YR02,04, 09, 16, C5, 7, 8
Embellishments: Martha Stewart punch, EK Success Retro Flower punch, Spellbinders Leaves
Technique: Treasure box designed by

The prize this week comes from our wonderful sponsor Crafty Ribbons.  The random winner will receive this wonderful batch of ribbons.

The treasure inside are these cute little drawers that I will fill with sweets.

Be sure and take a look at what the wonderful Design Team has come up with for your inspiration.  I hope you join us this week at Delightful Challenges and I look forward to visiting your blogs to see your fabulous creations.
