Birthday Box

I made this for one of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges at SCS, which was one of the non-card challenges.  I had this paper mache box that's been lurking around my house for a very long time that I decided was well overdue for a make over.  Around the base I added 4 panels of MME paper and for the top I used some pink MME for the base panel and more of the green for the layer.  Wrapped around both these panels is some pink satin ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment from JustRite's new Birthday Centers Round set, cut it out with circle nestabilities and matted with pink cut with the matching scallop and popping it all up on foam tape.  To finish I added some pink ribbon around the rim of the lid and along the bottom of the box, some Kaisercraft Lush pearls to the lid and of course a pink bow!!

Stamps: Birthday Centres Round (JustRite) 
Paper: Pink Bazzill, White, MME DSP  
Ink: Versacolor 
Accessories: Large Circle, Big Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Pink Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Paper Mache Box, Kaisercraft Lush Pearls.   

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
