Happy Belated Birthday Teri!

I've made a few blogging friends on this journey of mine, and one that I met in person is Teri. I ended up taking a couple of classes from her along the way and have learned so much from her that I thought I'd send her a little something for her b-day. Since she likes pink (and so do I!), I jumped at the chance to use my new pink polka dot cardstock. It took me a few days to decide on the right stamp, but I ended up choosing this bear stamp by Lily of the Valley. Thought it was cute since she was holding a birthday cake. Also got some of those Wild Orchid Crafts roses and added it on for some accent... Since Teri always makes the inside of her cards just as pretty as the outside, I decided to do the same for her... Here's the inside of her card.... Now for the gift box. Used the A2 box instructions from Splitcoast Stampers to make this box. Although I wasn't giving her cards, the size was perfect for the goodies I wanted to send. Added on the Anya from the Spotlight set, which I got from Tamiko's. Added on more roses and a bow to hold the box closed. Took this photo to show you that I used the same polka dot paper for the box base and punched the cover with the MS doily lace punch. Hope you like it Teri!

This is the sweetest little birthday card and gift box! Love that image...I need that stamp! Did you purchase it online or in Hilo? You are so clever how you use your MS edge punches to embellish...I like how you did the scallop edge on the box...what a wonderful idea! I'll bet Teri was so thrilled to receive these!
