Anything but a Card

The new challenge over on the My Besties blog today is
So if you would like to be in with a chance of winning $30 to spend on My Besties digi images, then just pop over to the challenge blog and link up your fabulous creations using a My Bestie image.

My anything but a card make was inspired by this post HERE, I loved the idea of turning a pillow box into a little handbag.
I made my pillow box almost A5 size, so it would be the perfect packaging for a scarf and gloves, or some make-up or jewellery.
