Paper Players Color Challenge

 Hi everybody!

 Anne Marie has a wonderful fall color challenge for us this week at The Paper Players.

 Well, the colors remind ME of fall, anyway!

I decided to decorate a small box from Stampin UP, filled with some chocolates, for a friend. The stripes on the box just happen to be Blackberry Bliss. I added a Cajun craze wreath and some fall leaves with all 4 colors on top. Then I tied the whole thing with some raffia.

I also needed a note card to go with, so I kept with the blackberry bliss, and added an always artichoke wreath. The berries are stamped in Cajun craze, and the sentiment in baked brown sugar.

Head on over to The Paper Players and play along!

Paper: SU white, blackberry bliss
Ink: SU baked brown sugar, Cajun craze, always artichoke
Stamps: SU Wondrous Wreath, Seasonal sayings
Dies: SU wondrous wreath, Flower Fair

Absolutely adorable, love, love, love the little box and the leaves on top, fabulous! The card is the perfect compliment to the box, (or is it the other way around)?

Laurie, these are SO cute!!! Your striped box is a perfect background for your pretty wreath & leaves!

Yapha said...

Super cute!! I love how you decorated that box top, Laurie!

Laurie, I love how you used the colors. The gift card could be used for Thanksgiving AND Christmas and the cluster of leaves as a bow on the package is sheer genius!

It was great you were able to incorporate the Blackberry Bliss from the box and the gift card together. What a cute little gift set and I'm sure well appreciated by your friend. I love the wreath and the Thank you tag across it. TFS.

Laurie, brilliant idea to put the wreath on a small square note card and that box is stunning!

Two beautifully co-ordinated projects Laurie - the box is adorable and the card the perfect accompaniment.

What a fun project Laurie! The little box is so fun with the raffia trim and I love how the wreath pops off the card a wee bit. Too cute! Way to showcase the challenge colors! Hugs! :)
