Happy Birthday To You!

 *** I have two posts today-please scroll down for the Crafter's Companion Blog Hop***
Happy Friday!
So glad to be back with a new project today using my Cheery Lynn dies-I find that having so many new products makes me want to use them all.I contained myself and decided a sweet and simple design was a better

This week our challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is  

Here are the rules:
  • You MUST follow the theme and use at least one Cheery Lynn Designs die, of course, we would love to see more than one. 
  • You MUST add a link to your blog post in the InLinkz at CHEERY LYNN's Challenge post; no back posting, only new projects are allowed
  • You MUST link to Cheery Lynn's Challenge blog in your post
The winner will be chosen based on merit by Cheery Lynn Designs. They will receive a $20 coupon for shopping at the Cheery Lynn website. The challenge will end on Sunday night at 22:00 Eastern time.
This design started with the butterfly. I used two different butterflies from Small Angel Wing. Did you know you can make wonderful butterfly shapes by putting these dies on a piece of folded paper? next, I ran these butterflies through my big shot using Burble / Cheese Cloth Texture Embossing Plate. This gave them a great texture perfect for dimension.
I decided to make this mini gift box for a little gift container to house some type of little doo dad.I went to work making flowers to accent each panel,Large Rose ,Medium Rose and Leaf is one of my favorite flower combos and always goes together so quickly... have you seen these dies? I suggest you pick some up for your flower needs.They come in three sizes and I love combining them to make a rose.
See I just added a little filler in the inside and it is ready to be filled with a gift...I think the box is really a gift in itself.
That fun little twine is from really Reasonable ribbon and seemed to work to match the leaves and add a pop of color.

So did you join our challenge this week, you still have a couple days to enter? Would love to see what you created for our Birthday theme.
