Elzybells Birthday Celebrations DT Challenge

To celebrate Elzybells 5th Birthday, Elizabeth gave us DT members a challenge of making somthing other than a card that could be used as gift wrapping for a present. It could be any theme e.g. Christmas, Birthday, Haloween ...

Here is what I came up with. We always give chocolates in my family at Christmas so I thought about trying to send them in a different way or have them in a differnt container to give out to people on Christmas Day. I used a Stampendous pail and covered the entire handle with ribbons then stamped out the super cute penguin and coloured him in with Copics. I cut him out using Nestabilities dies and added a Doodlebug Paper Frill around the tin before adding the image on top. I stamped the greeting on to card and also cut out using a Nestabilities die then stamped the snowflake image on top using purple chalk ink. I hope you like! Check out the other gorgeous DT samples on Elizabeth's blog, Happy Birthday Elzybells, I am so happy that I could share in your celebrations :0)

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Airondack Pitch Black, Colorbox Warm Violet Chalk Ink. CS: Papertrey ink, Bazzill Basics. ACCESSORIES: Stampendous Pail, Doodlebug Paper Frills, Nestabilities Dies, various ribbons from Doodlebug Designs, Papermania, Ribbon Oasis & Making Memories, Copic Markers.
