Just Because

***If you are looking for the Paper Makeup Stamps blog hop, please read this post then scroll down to the next post where you'll find the PMS post. Thanks! :-)***

I only have a few more posts to share with you before my DT spot on Artful INKables expires. I had an idea to make a cute little candy/mint box that you could give to someone "Just Because". Here's what I came up with using the new set Any Birdy Home?
In this set there are two flowers and one leaf to compliment the three beautiful birdhouses (see my posts using two of them here and here). Here is a way to use them individually. I just stamped three flowers and seven leaves, colored them, cut them out, and created this sort of swag on the top of the round tin container. I covered the clear lid with this dp from SU called Sweet Always. Since the lid is clear and I wanted the same dp to show on the inside (and not the other side of this piece), I put another piece on the inside of the lid as well. I took my colors from the dp to color the flowers. I like this combo! You can really see the star dust stickles on the flowers and leaves. The "Just Because" sentiment is from another new mini set called Fanciful Flowers.The sides of the tin were covered with SU ribbon in Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink grosgrain. I put some Cadbury Mini Eggs inside the tin. You could also put some mints in there. I'll be back maybe tomorrow or Tuesday with a Think INK Tuesday challenge. My favorite type of challenge....a sketch! Thanks for stopping in and have a great week!

Lisa I love pink and orange together and even more so now that I have seen this eye poppin' beauty. Love the vibrancy and sparkle on those flowers and leaves. I didn't realize your time was up at AI, it sure has flown by! It makes me chuckle that you always seem to have candy around to fill up this or that project that you just put together--you are my kinda gal!!
