Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #36!

Good Sunday morning to you all!

Edited to add: I do realize that I have used blue instead of green - the sentiment is green.....I tried to make it work with a green background and it just wasn't! Sometimes that just happens.....!

Sorry I am late, but I was waiting for paint to dry la
st night and then I couldn't get a good picture. I hope it was worth waiting for!

When I saw Rachel's inspiration cupcake photo this week I knew exactly what I would do. I have had this lonely little beat up old box hanging around forever - must revamp, must revamp, must revamp......

This little box has been beaten on, chewed up, thrown around - you name it - it owes me I rescued it and have had it in my scrap room catching this and that - you know - buttons, brads, little things you go to use on your creation and then decide differently?!!

Using Basic Grey June Bug paper and my clear Zva crystals, I altered it to look at least a little prettier on my desk.

I used Waltzingmouse Stamps Little Box Labels for my image and since the box was going to hold "Bits & Bobs" I added a button instead of an image!

I embellished with Zva Creative crystals and used my Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch to trim it. Did you know that Rachel has all her Martha Stewart punches on sale?!! But you better hurry - they are going fast!!

Take a sleigh ride over to the other Design Team members and let them know what you think about their beautiful creations! You will be floored!!

We also have a new guest designer sweetie this week - please ride that sleigh over to Elena's blog (The Red Haired Girl) and check out her creation!
