Hi everyone, I'm so excited to join in BBB for July challenge and want to thank them for having me.
For my project I used Flourishes stamp set "Spring has Sprung" and the sentiment is from Flourishes " With Graditude". My gift box was inspired from Beate's tutorial here. I wanted it a little larger to fit my die for the top and bottom base. So I  adjusted it by using a 6x9 piece of CS. 
I sponged Memento's summer sky in the background and colored the image with Copic's. The die's are from spellbinder's.
Sorry, that I haven't been posting much lately, my DH retired in June and I have been caught up in so much going on and lots of changes. Should settle down soon and I may have to post a "Do Not Distrube Sign on my crafting door! Hee Hee.

You will inspired by the stunning creations the team below has to share.

Betty Wright
Geri  ( you are here)

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
