It's lookin' like spring...something to sale-a-brate

If there is any colour that says "spring" it is yellow. Daffodils, tulips, irises crocuses all yellow. I thought the perfect colour to make my next matchbook box filled with chocolate (because chocolate knows no boundries when it comes to season) would be yellow to signify spring has begun to arrive. I wanted to use some of the Sale-a-bration gifts I got from Stampin'UP and so I paired up some of the delicate dot designer papers with the new textured Parisian breeze paper and made myself a masterpiece. I tried making another scallopped flower and this time it was alot easier the second time around. I topped it off with a button and hemp thread. I also got to use one of the stamp sets "Yummy" for my sentiment and the so saffron grosgrain ribbon. The box itself was made using so saffron textured card stock. I love how SU! coordinates their products so that mixing them up together is a breeze. I filled this box with "kisses" and will keep it close by. Happy stamping and thanks for looking. Go out and check your garden... you'll be surprised to see what has popped up.
