Split Top Card Box & CTMH Class 4/19/16

This morning's agenda did not include making a Split Top Card Box.  But the SCS Weekly Inkling arrived in my inbox,  just taunting me to give it a try.  
Papers are CTMH.

Clear It Out Challenge - Nature ; stash item - greenery ( It's all from the stash, the embellishments are left from making a bridal box several years ago.) bits and pieces of dp glued together,embossed and die cut; and ribbon I won ages ago.)
Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #262 - Earth Day (I hate to toss even little scraps of paper.  The die cut rectangle is composed of bits and pieces of dp glued together and embossed.)
Through the Craft Room Door Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Dee Bowz April Challenge - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create Challenge #172 - Anything Goes w/ option recycled materials (paper scraps)
Crafting for the Craic Challenge - Anything But a Card
As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Non Card Project  (I enjoy making pretty boxes. My cousin makes handmade soaps.  The boxes are perfect gift packages for his soaps and my cards.)

Now that I got that out of my system, the day's agenda still waits, and I have to add 'clean up the mess I made on my craft table' to the list.

Below are the 4 cards we made at Joyce's CTMH card class yesterday.
Her Spring Extravaganza is coming up, if you live in this area.
