Ladybug Crafts Ink - anything but a card!

We have a brilliant challenge for you today at Ladybug Crafts Ink and it will certainly give you a nice break from those valentine cards lol. This week the theme is ANYTHING BUT A CARD chosen by the lovely Mary J!

Embellishments - velvet lace ribbon, diecut and punched flowers, cloth brad, glitter
Medium - promarkers
I found a template on google to make the pillow box.

I love pillow bowes, although for the moment I really can't make one more, I've already made so many for my wedding as I hand-made all the pillow bowes for guests favors... This one is so beautiful thanks to that lovely flower and nice tag!
