Suitcase full of gratitude.

I've talked about this amazing girl before, my sweet sweet niece, and this time it was her "confirmation" day. She is such a mature and loving person and not at all like any other 15 year old I know, and she decided that the gifts was not a good enough reason to have a confirmation, (and here in Norway, that's pretty much the only reason people do it - I know that was my reason once upon a time...)
So the family decided that a better reason to throw a party is hard to find. She gave it up for all the right reasons and because of that she deserved it even more.
She was also the toastmaster at our wedding 1 month ago and we wanted to give her something as a thank you from us. 
We got her a gift certificate and I made a suitcase to put it in, a hard challenge, but really fun too.

I found the totorial for this amazing little gem in the last issue of the Magnolia Ink Magazine. I've used cardstock from Biltema and design papers from Papirdesign. The motif on the outside is Lily of the Valley, colored with Copics. Inside is a mini Magnolia, also colored with Copics. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima. The dies used are Spellbinders. Embellishments are from Kort og Godt, Tim Holtz and Scrappiness. Bling swirl is Prima and butterfly punch is EKSuccess.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Dies to die for
Die Cut Dreams - Flower Power
Fab 'n 'funky - It's a hard theme
My time to craft - 'L' is for ; Lily of the valley, lock, "leather", leaves
OLLCB - Punches/dies
One stop Craft - Girlie

Takk for at du tittet innom!/Thank you for stopping!
Klem/Hugs Celia!
