Thanks A Billion Bubbles - Box

Hi everyone hope you’re all well.
I was a bit sick this week, but I’m much better now.
And it’s time for another challenge over at Stampin for the weekend!
Can you believe two weeks has past already?
We are kindly sponsored by Meljen's Designs .
Meljen's Designs kindly sent all the DT’s digi stamps to use for this week challenge.
I decided to use the bunny bathing and use it on a thank you box.
During the past few weeks one of my ballet friends’ mother helped my mother drive me around for the classes and rehearsals and my mother wanted to say thank you. So I made a gift box for her and my mother brought a little gift to put inside.
So here it is:

When I think of aunty Tracy I think of the colour blue. I just think blue fit well with her!

I had paper printed with big blue bubbles for ages and just didn’t have the right theme to used it for - it fitted this digi stamp perfectly!

I coloured the Meljen's Designs digi stamp with the following Promarkers:
Sandston – for the bunny’s body
Rose Pink – for the ears
Carmine – for the hat
Sky blue – for the bubbles
Gold – for the bath
Henna – for the bath brush
Yellow – for the bath brush’s inside
Cool Grey 1 – for all around the stamp
I also stuck a blue flower in each corner of the stamp.

I wrote “Thanks A Billion Bubbles” on the tag, I punched two golden eyelids in, threaded a blue-dotted-satin ribbon through the eyelids and made an upside down bow.

I put some lace with a thin blue ribbon on top at the bottom of the box.

I also put two big golden eyelids at the top of the box and threaded the same ribbons as at the bottom, through, to carry the bag.

And here is the gift my mother brought to put inside.
The perfect gift to go with the digi stamp and paper, don’t you think?
Please go to Stampin for the Weekend and take a look at all the beautiful cards that my DT friends made. They are stunning!
