Mid Challenge Inspiration -- Anything But a Card

Happy Sunday, Julie O here today. We're halfway through our current challenge, anything  but a card.  Have you made something and linked up yet?  You can make a tag, box, scrapbook layout, home decor piece, anything at all -- as long as it's not a card.  Need a little inspiration? Here's a springtime treat box I created:
It uses a 3/4 inch Pinque Peacock fabric covered button. It is from the Pinque Hope Bundle.  The lamb treat box is a cutting file from My Scrap Chick.  It's the perfect size to hold some chocolates,  gift card, or other small present. 
Now, get crafting and link up.  You have until Mar 30!

This will be our LAST biweekly challenge and we will then be hosting challenges MONTHLY!
The Pinquettes and I decided the last challenge flew by WAY TOO FAST.   Many voiced that they just didn't get a chance to create in time for it, we have listened!

So, starting with Challenge #4 (which goes live on 3/31/14), we are keeping our challenges open LONGER!  The challenges will remain open ALL MONTH LONG to give more time for you to create and to give more time for others to find out about the challenges and join the fun!

Now, onto our 3rd Challenge!

Show us your imagination and create something, anything, other than a card.  You can use any colors you wish and it doesn't just have to be your paper crafts!
