Monogram Box for Colleen

Colleen likes earth tone,  so I tried to look for more neutral colours that may fit her scraproom.  I went with light orange because I really love the flowers and thought it would still be a good match for her room.

Like what I did with the other monogram boxes, I started with a basic white paper box from Michael's.  I used mod podge to glue the papers on and added the embellishments.  I did use some neutral coloured trims and pearls to tone down the colours.  I added the die cut butterfly as an accent and added embellishments sparingly so that the beautiful background colour can show through. 

Supplies List:

DCWV Mariposa patterned paper
Ashland Spring Floral Bushes
Cuttlebug A2 Butterfly
Recollections Adhesive Pearls

DeNami Mini Cards Blog Hop

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to DeNami's August Blog Hop!   If you are following the blog hop, you must have come from Nicki Scheck's wonderful blog!   If you missed the previous blog stops, you can hop back over to the DeNami Blog to start from the beginning.  You have until August 15, 2011, 11:59pm PST to leave comments on all the blogs in order to be eligible to receive one of the two $20 DeNami gift certificates.  Winners will be chosen randomly.  Good luck!

For this Blog Hop, I used 3 stamps from 2 sets of DeNami's Trifle stamps.  There are 3 stamps in each set, and they can be used together on one card, or in this case, used separately in three different mini-cards.   The mini-cards work really well as gift tags.

I have lots of fun colouring and stickling the stamped images because of the fun girly theme.  I matted the images with patterned paper.

Thanks again for stopping by!  Your next stop is the very talented Karen Larkin's blog!
