Birthday Pillow Box

Are you ready for a party?  How about 613 Avenue Create's THIRD Annual Block Party?
I can hardly believe that this is the third block party I'm participating in! 

To celebrate, the optional twist to our Anything Goes Challenge, is to create a birthday or anniversary project.

Today, I'm using "Cupcake Teddy" from one of our great sponsors, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.

I chose to make a pillow box for my project this week.  I find that birthdays seem to sneak up on me a lot more than they used to, so having something like this that I can fill with candy and add some cash or a gift card to is always handy.

 I used a couple of cuts from the Silhouette store (#1184, and #6983) for the box and the candle shape.  The image was colored in using my usual mix of Copics and a few additional pencils for depth.  The ribbon was some I had left over from Christmas - I believe it was a really inexpensive ribbon from Walmart.  

I set aside all my anxiety about it, and took a pair of scissors to my sentiment stamp in order to separate it out to stamp on my image.  It worked!

Be sure to stop on by 613 Avenue Create this week for inspiration from the rest of the DT and to join in with our party!
