Belated Birthday Celebration...

Too late is tomorrow's life; live for today. -Proverb

Elizabeth at Elzybells spent the weekend celebrating the company's 5th Birthday...the DT was challenged to make a project that was Not a card...and that was a gift or gift packaging.

I have been saving a Prima Flowers box for ages for Just the Right project...I decided this was it! The original packaging is a soft "Victoria's Secret" pink, but I wanted a different I covered the whole thing. I used A Winter Song as the focal was stamped on white, but I colored in the BG with a light Copic to make the snow show up more. The paper is "Oh Joy" by Cosmo Cricket.
Stamps: A Winter Song (Elzybells)
Paper: Oh Joy (Cosmo Cricket,) Stampers Select White
Ink: Graphite Black (Brilliance,) Markers (Copic)
Misc: Sticky Gems, Die Cut, Liquid Applique, Stickles, Border Punch (MS Crafts,) Lace Trim (Webster's Pages,) Polka Dot Ribbon
