Teddy Bea Gift Box

ETA: My Teddy Bea Gift Box was selected as the Overall Winner by the Teddy Bo Challenge DT ladies. Thanks!

Happy Friday! I am so excited to submit my Teddy Bea Gift Box to The Teddy Bo Challenge: Anything But a Card. This is the very first time I submit one of my creations to a challenge, let's see how it goes. I recently found this adorable digital stamps and I have become "addicted". I want them all!

Teddy Bea "sitting, waiting for you" was the first digital stamp I purchased from the Teddy Bo website so I figured it would bring me good luck on my first challenge.

The gift box measures approx. 4 1/2"W x 7 1/2"H and 1" deep. It's perfect for chocolates, stamps, cards or even jewelery! I created a box template, cut it from chipboard and then decorated it using My Mind's Eye paper from the Lost and Found Collection.

The flowers and rhinestones are from Recollections, the ribbon and butterfly punch from Martha Stewart. Teddy Bea's gorgeous winds and the ornate plate inside the box from Tom Holtz signature products, idea-ology.

I colored Teddy Bea with Copic markers. Fur: E37, E35, E31, E50. Dress and Hat: V17, V15, V12 and V000. White accents: C5, C3, C1 and 0. 

Thanks for visiting!
