Blogger's Challenge

Good Morning! This week's challenge was to use the colors brown and sage in an item.

I used the new stamp set Friends 24-7 with Sage and Close to Cocoa carstock. The bird is stamped with basic brown on vanilla and then stamped again with baja breeze. I cut the bird and layered onto the brown bird.

And I used the new eyelet punch along the bottom. This is my new favorite punch!!

I have been making these gift boxes that are great to put a collection of cards into. This gift set is made with the Bella Bleu designer paper. I have to say that the pictures in the catalog do not do justice to this paper. But when I saw it in person, I just love it!!
