Box with Little Mimosa

Hi everybody!

Today I want to share the box I made for my mum's birthday last Thursday. This box was already featured yesterday on the Copic Marker Europe blog so you may have already seen it.

Isn't she just adorable? This is my first time using a Bildmalarna stamp but that isn't because I don't like them... just lack of time :). This stamp is called "Little Mimosa is coming". The cute sentiment is by Raindrop Echo Designs for Whimsy Stamps and you can find that set HERE and the matching dies HERE (if you win my candy (on top of my blog) you might just get to pick these for free). The gorgeous papers used are by Maja Design and I bought them at the Dutch fair I went to earlier this year, the Knotsgekke kaartendagen, at Scrap & More. I noticed this store had a challenge on their blog HERE and decided to enter into it. So I used the sketch that you are supposed to use to enter into the challenge but instead of a square card I decided to make a rectangle box. I do hope that's OK though. I did make sure I attached everything that was asked for. Here is a close up of Little Mimosa
Isn't she cute? For the Copic Markers used I'd like to point you to my post at Copic Marker Europe, they are all listed there. As always the image was cut into little pieces and 3D paper pieced. Below you'll find two pictures that show that better :).
 And the little pieces:
As always I hope you like the box I made. I have made another box, a weddinggift, but can't show you that yet, I made it for someone special and need to ask if and when I can post it. And I am also working on a second weddinggift box, also by request, I'll probably show that in a week or two. And after that I need to hurry to get the samples ready for the new Whimsy Stamps release that is coming on VERY soon and is fabulous again.

And talking about Whimsy stamps... have you seen my candy HERE? You still have a little less then a week to enter if you are a follower of my blog and you could just win 25 dollars to spend on your favorite Whimsy Stamps goodies.

Well that's it for now. Be back soon. As always, thank you so much for your comments!! They mean a lot.
