1_happy_birthday_box I just love making all kinds of boxes ( Almost as much as  any type of moving card )  Anywho Jenn  did this fabulous tutorial on  the 2,5,7,10 box over  at SCS and  I  just knew I had to make one  for myself ..  I used the petals & paisley  designer paper  and I  finally got to use  some of my  flirty  ribbon ( long  gone.. no longer available  Boo Hoo )I also used my year after year  stamp set. Every time I used the present from this set I  always grab my  aqua painter ..  as soon as I stamp image I  go over  the image with my aqua painter and it   smears  the  color around perfectly blending and shading .. No extra color  needed ..( I especially love this technique  with purely pomegranate cause that color is so vivid  ). Any way  I also used    Friend to friend  ( retired )  for the Happy Birthday tag on the side  .. I also added a  extra  scallop of white under the  flap over  to  bring it all together  KWIM?   and  as if  there needed to be more pink on  my box I added a snip of Lt pink GG ribbon  with a staple in the corner  of  my present . I love how the Flirty ribbon really  completes this box . so Happy I had my flirty ribbon Oh and lets not  forget the  tiny  white gel pen dots on the present ..(betcha didn’t see them  HUH?).
