A Gift of Color

LOVE these colors together.  Right up my alley!!
If you would like to join in on all the fun of the DOstampers Stars Thursday challenges just let me know and I can get you all the information.  I get so inspired with the challenges that we have.  It is so much fun!  You can just shoot me an email.

Just a little gift box.
 I have seen some cards while blog hopping with the little gift boxes on I thought why not just make a BIG one instead, that will hold a little something ... something. 

For the box itself I used the Scallop Envelope Die with the Big Shot.  I trimmed off some of the sides of the envelope to make the box open at the top.  (You will need 2 Envelopes to make the box)

The great Polka Dot background paper is from the pack of Patterns Designer Series Stack (Bright Collection).  Love using this DSP!  It makes it so easy to match up you designer paper with your projects.  It comes in all the color families.  For the bow on top of the box is made with the NEW punch that came out in the Summer Mini Catalog.  The punch is called "Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch".  You have to check these out if you haven't already!

 As for the "Big Wish" saying this came from the fabulous stamp set called "Word Play".  Of course this is another great set.

To finish off the saying I put a little Basic Rhinestone in the middle of the star dot of the "i" in Wish.  It just gave it the bling to make it pop!  I also used 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon in Daffodil Delight for the handle of the gift box.

I hope that you can join in on all the fun that we have in these challenges next week.

Happy Stamping!
