Fill Your Day with Joy

Happy Sunday! Today, my niece Maria is making her confirmation and I am her sponsor. I wanted to make her a special card, of course. I bought her a cross charm for her Pandora bracelet, so I needed a little package to present it in. Luckily, this week's JUGs challenge is a template challenge, and we used My Time Made Easy's Tuck-ered Out template. It was a perfect fit for the little Pandora box.
Maria loves green, so I tried to incorporate that as much as possible. I used the retired dp from SU called Afternoon Tea for the box, which has some pretty Wild Wasabi green in it. I paired it with a pretty ribbon from Michael's. I chose to use SU's retired set Symbols of Salvation and Taylored Expressions sketch for her card.
The dp coordinates with SU's Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi colors. I ran the wasabi piece through a Sizzix folder and used a piece of Soft Sky for the scallops. I had a difficult time trying to find a senitment for the occasion, but found this great one in PTI's Year of Flowers: Sweet Peas set. I made it into a banner and swirled some Soft Sky ink around it. I love this new Spellbinder's die and how it looks with the Soft Sky ink swirled around it while the paper was still in the die. It looks so dainly and like a doily. The image is colored with copics on the new X-press It Blending cardstock from Copic. The colors apply like a dream on it! I finished it off with some green bling.

You can check out these little boxes on the JUGs blog and you can purchase them at My Time Made Easy. Sneaks for the MTME October release start on Wednesday, and I'll have a fabulously delicious project to share with you! Thanks for stopping in today!
