Photo Inspiration Challenge #17

Heello! I must apologise for the lack of posting but I'm in the process of selling one property and buying another and it's been a real nightmare so far - God knows what I'm paying a solicitor for as I seem to be doing half the work myself to speed things up! :o( Anyway, enough of my ranting. Today I went to the ICHF at the Birmingham NEC which -apart from being far to packed  out - was fab! I ended up spending most of my stash cash on Magnolia goodies (watch this space for some xmas creations!). Now, I'd like to share with you my DT creations for this week's Bee Crafty Challenge which is based on this lurrvely photo:
Now the great thing about this challenge is that you can choose as many or few elements of it as you like! Me? I took from it the colour scheme, the spots and flowers and this is what I came up with (the photos are not the best quality thanks to the poor amount of daylight today):

I just love this dotty pink card. It was a digi download from cupcake card craft. Here is a peek inside the card...

and here is the mini pizza box turned gift box!

So what have I materials have I used?..
