Birthday Box

Good afternoon!
The sun is FINALLY out it's such a happy day.
I discovered a new challenge blog that one of my design team sisters help run so I wanted to play along. This is my first time so I'm so excited. It's called Scrappy Frogs Challenge blog. If you haven't checked it out do so here.
The challenge this week was to model a project after the ad for the new Making Memories Slice. They are going to pick a winner and you can win a Making Memories Slice Apron. So Cool!

Here is the ad.....
Here is my project.......

I cut the cake box from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More at fit to page. I think it cut at 9".
I used a grayish paper from Bazzill. For the center "layer" I used a piece of blue vellum and added a sparkly tinsel like ribbon to the center of that. I found it at Hobby Lobby. For the scalloped edges I used my EKSuccess scallop punch and punched them in Turquoise paper also from Bazzill. I added a few Blue adhesive gems to the top. I wanted to use the word "Slice" too. The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with tag Nesties. I piled a bunch of turquoise flowers on the top. On the very top of the pile of flowers I cut a green flower in half and stood it up to mimic the green logo on the slice. The top "frosting" was run through the Cuttlebug using divine swirls.
I also did a card that I'm not happy with...but you can't like em all!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope your day is as sunny as mine. Can you tell I have the Cabin Fever??!!!!
