Pink Winter Birthday

Here are my first  creations as a member of Lexi's Creations design team. The challenge is # 30 - Pink Winter Birthday. You must check out her site. The design team is such a talented group I promise you will not be disappointed.
I made a 4'' x 4''  box  and decorated the top with the 'Christmas Shopping Phoebe' stamp from Fairy Dust Crafts ( I had taken a Stampin Up class a couple of years of ago where we created a similar box ,so I owe thanks to Dawn Frost for the knowledge of the box construction. Splitcoast Stampers have instructions on using a 5 in 1 template for making a similar  box . I don't have the template so I just made a 4x4 square for the lid  and drew half circles around each side. Worked great. 

Such a pretty little lady is Phoebe. I coloured her, added a few swirls and pearls, a little pink ribbon   and the box was done. I then created   a birthday card to complete the set.  Voila, I  had a perfect  container and card to give to my son's girl friend for her January birthday ( don't worry it will fit - lol). I'm done way ahead of time. No last minute running around looking for paper and tape..... What could be better!

The sponser for this weeks challenge at Lexi's Creations is Joanna Sheen.
