A Pillow's not always for sleeping!

Good morning! Here is a Pillow Box I made with a Template and Digital Images from Angel's Landing! This was just so fun to make! I printed out a template pattern which comes with the Pierced Background set. It could also be printed right on dp I stapled it to some K& Co paper from the Madeline pack and cut in out, then scored the score lines to fold it. That part was done!
After that, I printed out one copy of Simply Flowers onto Neenah Classic Crest, solar White card stock and one copy of Pierced Tags on the same card stock. The neat thing when you buy digital images is that they are on your computer as long as you want them! I could have printed out more so I could use some of the same flower.
I colored my flowers with copics and the colors are listed below. Then I cut them out and mounted them with glue dots onto a Nestability shape which I had sponged with Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist. I bent the flower petals up a bit for dimension. I had also added a yellow brad to the small blue flower before attaching.
Oh yes, I had also used my little slot punch from SU on the sides of the Nestability die so I could thread the ribbon through and around the box.
I sponged the tag with aqua after cutting it out. It looks a little green because there was some green ink on my sponge! Oops! I added some sparkle with Stardust stickles to the flower centers!
So that's my Angel's Landing project for this week! Judi's other designers are posted on my sidebar and I hope you will visit them! I know I will!
Here are the copic colors I used:
RV10, Rv91, RV32, RV34, YG21, YG25, YG17, BG10, BG11, BG18, Y21, Y11
Thanks so much for stopping by! The winner of the Post it notepad and holder for last Friday's blog hop is posted below.
Have a great day!

What a glorious coloring job you've done on this blossom bouquet, Cheryl. I also like the way you've trimmed the petals individually. Simply beautiful.
