Card & Keepsake box for a good friend 💗

Godt Nytt år! 🎉 Kortet og gaveboksen (lagd av en créme chéri oste eske!) er mine DT bidrag hos Creative Fingers #270.,
som denne gang er sponset av vår DT Anne Constantly-Carding! Hun selger digitale kits / ark pakker gjennom CraftsUPrint, og gir bort tre flotte digikits som premie, jeg har brukt et av Annes andre kits ~ Tropical DSP and Floral Clipart Set. Som alltid har vi et 'Lag-hva-du-vil' tema, og velkommen skal du være! 💗
You are special
Good friends are worth gold.

Happy New Year! 🎉 My card and little keepsake box are DT inspiration for this fortnights challenge #270. at Creative Fingers. I'm showcasing beautiful digital papers and clipart from the 'Tropical DSP and Floral Clipart Set' designed by our sponsor and DT Anne Constantly-Carding.
