Oh you Lucky Bird!!

"Lucky Bird" is the image that we received on Friday from Designed 2 Delight for participating in her challenge last week and the great news is since it was the first Friday in the month....it is free to you also. You can take part each week by creating something with the free image you receive and every week that you do, you will get another one of Faith's images free. Don't you just love that word!!

Faith also has a separate challenge blog Card Ideas where they have a challenge each Saturday using images from D2D showcased by a talented design team. The challenge this week was to go "Green" and by that they want you to create something using something you have reused or recycled. I had just taken this box in my stamping room last week....it had a piece of jewelry in it at one time from QVC and it was so sturdy that I thought I could use it for something, turns out it is the perfect size to hold a dozen nuggets. I have made nugget boxes in the past but this couldn't have worked any better.
I paper pieced Lucky with dp from Scrapbook Walls and colored him with SU markers. I used a pop dot on his tail to give him some dimension. The cuttlebug folder "Birds and Vines" was perfect with him. I really like how he turned out and will use him at both challenge sites. I hope you will stop by and check out this fun blog.
Here is a look at the side of the box so that you can see the layers.


Card Details:
Paper: DP Scrapbook Walls, Yellow unk, Black Stampin' Up
Ink: SU markers, Memento Summer Sky and Bamboo Leaves
Extras: Spellbinders Peony die, GinaK Designs buttons, ribbon from Michael's, DMC floss

This is adorable, I hold on to every box, too! Love how you transformed this jewelry box into a treat box, such a fun project. Love your colors, too and the sponging adds such a pretty touch inside the nestie shape. Thanks for joining us at Card Ideas and D2D this week!
