Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Good Monday Morning Peeps!! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I am sharing a fun little round box I made with a tutorial I found HERE! I change mine up a bit to make it taller.

This is my second week as a guest designer on the LateNightStampers Group and this week's challenge is Challenge 91-Birthday Blowout, any birthday projects or cards.

On this birthday wishes box I used some of the Love Letters DS paper and riding hood red card stock. The top and bottom scallops are cut with the Scallop die #2. The sentiment is from the Occasional Quotes Hostess Set. As you can see I am a bit hooked on making these butterflies. I used the Butterfly die and cut out the butterfly first with very vanilla and then stamped with black stazon and the flower stamp is from "Elements of Style". I colored the flowers in with riding hood red ink and the leaves with pear pizzazz. I added a bit of daffodil delight to the centers. I used my aqua painter and used a light touch to keep the paper from pilling.

I added some pearls to the center of the butterfly and some black ribbon around the base of the box. The antennas fro the butterfly are some little doo-dads from my friends stash, not sure what they are called. You got to try one if these round boxes, they are so fun and easy!!!

Well, that is it from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
