Wild Orchid Challenge daisies with boxes for twins

Hi everybody!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges and this time we want you to use daisies on your project. I actually have two samples to show you today since I decided to create baby gift-boxes for this challenge for not one but two little girls that were born on June 12th, two little twin girls named Lisa and Aurelia.
Now if you have been following me for a longer period of time you may recall that I have already used this stamp ones before. It's by Whipper Snapper Designs and it's called Floppy Bunny Trio and I used it in 2011 for a box for a little boy named Kian. I don't use stamps twice often but this stamp just matched the gifts I had so perfectly that I had to use it again (and again LOL). The pretty papers are from the Rosa Dotje A Flower a day Blauw/Roze paper pad combined with pink and kraft colored cardstock. I do believe the Rosa Dotje paper is Dutch so I'm not sure if it's available in other countries. The letters are cut out of Joy Crafts fine corrugated cardboard with Sizzlits Round-a-bout dies. The ticket with the birthdate is from the Whimsy Stamps Friendship Ticket Sentiments set, I stamped it with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap, distressed it with the same ink and wrote the date with the Frayed Burlap Distress Marker. The ribbon on top is from stash. The charms are Marianne Design Newborn Charms and the pearls are from a Flourish with a Bling pink pearl pack.

The Wild Orchid Crafts products that I used (for the two boxes) are:
Pink Set of Mixed Flowers (these aren't for sale at the moment but I hope they'll be back after WOC has moved)
Guipure White Lace (around the rim of the lid of the box for Lisa)
Shocking Pink 12mm Satin Ribbon (around the Aurelia box)
Baby Pink 12mm Satin Ribbon (around the Lisa box)
And a close up of both colored images, both colored with Copic Markers and both 3D paper pieced:
And the gifts we got the little ladies:
And finally, one of the two images in little pieces, I used exactly the same little pieces on the second image but only in different colors:
Hope that inspires you to join us at Wild Orchid Challenges! And can't wait to bring these boxes to the new mummy and daddy.

Have a great day everybody!!!
