Another challenge that I have enjoyed doing. I had this idea when I first saw this challenge come up. I think most people will see it as a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Sherpet design, but I don't mind, as this is what I do best.

I had these little square boxes in my craft collection, and just had to find a larger square box, for the nine little square boxes to fit into the larger box.

I looked everywhere, and in the end, I found that my square canvas painting board, turned upside down was the perfect hollow square, to fit the nine little cardboard boxes in with a snug fit. It was just perfect, and I then covered all around the framed edges, with mini corrugated natural colored card.

I also covered four of the lids of the boxes with the same natural colored mini corrugated card. The other five opened boxes have rose petal 'potpourri' in them. I then finished the design with four of my tiny dried rose flowers.

I hope you all like this one, as I was quite pleased with it.

You're right, Shez, I did recognize your beautiful image as being one of your designs. I always love them, and this is no exception.

This was the first shot I sought out after the voting was done. I had to see if it was really you!

You know you're really getting somewhere as a photographer when you have developed a style that is your own that other people recognize. Nice work. I am envious!

Lovely! I see lots of folks thought it reminded them of a ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' sherpet image while voting. :-) But hey, when you do something VERY well (and you do), just keep doing them! I foresee someday you'll have an entire line of greeting cards, and they'll all be square. Lovely shot - glad you enjoyed putting it together, too.

This looks like a cross between ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Sherpet's two top scoring images.

Nice geometric patterns - this would look good as a coffee-table centre-peice (if you had a big enough coffee-table). The feel reminds me of some of ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Sherpet's shots

Very cool composition, colors, lines, etc. I like it a lot. At first glance I want to say it's a tad OOF, but when I look closer I start doubting myself...Anyway, it merits a 7 from me at least.
