It's your day.

I've got a little gifty idea for you today using the image from My Favorite Things' latest kit - Bath Time. I wanted to show you how you can expand on the kit and images. In this case, I'm using one of the die cut boxes from an earlier kit that's no longer available. This little gable box perfectly fits a bar of hand made soap that I picked up at a craft fair. I made this little set for a birthday gift.

The images were stamped on Perfect Paper Panels with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and paper pieced for the most part. The only coloring with Copic marker is on the legs, where I used E50 and E51. I ran the top layer of base card paper through my Cuttlebug with the my Swiss Dots folder and then swiped the top with Whisper White Craft ink to give the dots more definition. The eyelet lace has Groovy Guava ribbon threaded through it with a bow. I'm using paper from a retired SU! DSP called Afternoon Tea which I love--I thought the flowered stripe was *perfect* for the wallpaper!

Here's a close up of the box:

And the inside of the card-- the sentiment and bubbles are from Time For the Bubbly:
