Happy Hump Day Everyone!!  If you are here for the ODBD Blog hop please click here. For a chance to win some awesome prizes or for some inspiration, you will want to participate.  It ends tonight at 8 p.m. EST.


Now on to today's events and happenings.  There are lots of fun challenges starting today and I am so happy to share just a few of them with you. Since it is Wednesday, it is time for another Creative Belli, Whiff of Joy and Your Next Stamp Challenge!!


The first creation I would like to share with you is for both the Creative Belli and Whiff of Joy challenge.  Since I was away last week, I just had to combine it due to the lack of time.


This week's Whiff of Joy Challenge is to use Buttons and Blooms on your creation!  Since I love details and embellishing, this was easy for me!!  This week's Creative Belli Challenge is to use animals (think of all those animals coming out of hibernation).  Combining these two challenges gave me the opportunity to use one of my fave WOJ stamps Henry Mouse!!  I used Henry Celebrating Mouse to create an easel gift box/card for my sister's birthday!!

The design is my own and does not use a tutorial or template of any sort.  I so enjoy being free and getting creative with my designs!


 I used some of my favorite paper  Kaisercraft English Rose!!!  The cardstock is River Rock and Pink Pirouette.  The image is colored with copics (E40, E41, E31, E33, E35, E51, R20, R00, R11, R81, R83, and R85, G41)
The handles of the drawers are gold/pearl  buttons from Joanne Fabrics.  The flowers are from Wild Orchids.  The gold flourishes are from Spellbinders Floral Accents.  The background behind the image is embossed with Spots from Provocraft. The image is framed with Spellbinders Lacey Circles.  The twigs are punched with a Martha Stewart twig punch.  The ribbon is May Arts Silk ribbon (pink).  If you click on the photo you can see all the sparkle and glitter including on the icing of the cupcake
Card Recipe:

Stamps: Whiff of Joy - Henry Celebrating Mouse
Paper: Kaisercraft English Rose, Pink Pirouette, River Rock, American Crafts gold glitter paper
Accessories: buttons, Pink silk ribbon from May arts, Wild Orchid Roses
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, Lacey circles (Spellbinders) Classic Circles spellbinders, gold cording, copics, Provocraft spots embossing folder, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Martha Stewart fig punch
