It's Earth Day! It's My B-day Blog Hop

Hey everyone and welcome to the blog hop! I am so excited to be part of this hop and glad you can join us! If you have just come from http://www.happynscrappin.blogspot.com/ you are in the right place, but if you just happen to drop by here, remember to start from Gaby the host of the blog hop and don't forget to comment on all the blogs for your chance to WIN some awesome give ways! This is my project......

I saw mum making an Easter gift box,  it was really cool! I thought I could do one similar but decorate it to look earthy and pretty with flowers for the blog hop.
First I cut out the box and a stuck it together. Then I cut out the tree embossed it and added crystal effects to the leaves,
Then I cut out the flowers and there wasn't any separate layers so I cut out two, one in green and the other in white so I could colour it in with my copics. I added glitter to the flowers, and with the green piece I cut off the flowers so I just had the grass, this was so I could layer it on top of the other piece.
I added in Birthday Celebration sentiment and the pretty butterfly was the final touch! The tissue paper was shredded and placed inside so you could place a little gift there.....hope you like it! :)
 What I used:
Cricut Cartridges
- Serenade, Tree
-Wrap it Up, Box
-Plantin School Book, Flowers
Stampin Up
-Bliss, Butterfly
-Upsy Daisy
-Crystal Effects
Other Stuff
-Kindy Glitz, Flowers
-Foam Dots
-Green Tissue Paper
-Copics
Thank you so much for hoping with us have lots of FUN! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GABY!!!!
