No Cards Allowed cards allowed. Talk about being out of a comfort zone! Well, Pollycraft Monday Challenge invites you to a challenge where you can do anything except a card. How delicious does that sound? Well, check out what the DT made and you'll be uber excited and inspired!

I follow Stampin Inspirations by Maria and she is always creating something new and providing a tutorial! This is one in which the details are great! The thing is, she is super talented and she puts more effort into what she did than I did. She consistently makes the most beautiful crafts. My box turned out cute though - simple, but cute.

I won't tell you I had to do the top three times because me and 7/8s just don't get along! :)

I put Edward (Tellen Designs) on the front because the sides have stockings - isn't that cute?

I finally got the top right, punched it with MS lace and tied ribbons on the corners where my other papers didn't quite meet - a nice way to hide mistakes, eh? :D Shhh...Don't tell anyone!
