12 Days of Christmas Blog hop with TCC

~On the 5th hop of Christmas TCC gave to me~ 5 Bits of Bling~

Hello my friends, It's blog hop time with The Character Cafe. The theme for this month's New image release blog hop is "The 12 Days of Christmas", and believe me, you don't want to miss this Blog Candy!! (includes a copic airbrush system) for the full details you must begin at The Character Cafe Store. If you have already started the blog hop and have come by way of Kendra & Kelly's fabulous blog then you are in the right place. :0) The digi image i used on my box is the Poinsetta. I LOVE poinsetta's so i was ecstatic to work with it.

I used the Top Note Box tutorial that i got from none other than Maria Bell's Blog. I did add a little strap with an antique brad to the front of the box that closes with velcro, just for an added touch. I printed out two poinsetta images and cut the leaves off one and added it to the top of the other image with a foam dot. I tried to curl up the leaves and petals so they wouldn't seem so flat. I added some gold stickles to the center for some Bling. I embossed my sentiment with some gold detail embossing powder to give it a little more elegance. I really like the way it turned out, i will definately be making more of these. You also have a chance at winning the Poinsetta image just by leaving me a comment on this post. I am going to send you on your way now to go check out Billie's fabulous creation, i'm sure she is anxiously awaiting your arrival. Thank you so much for visiting me today!!! :0)
