CCMC Color Challenge 240

Good Morning, Stampers!

I love the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary today! I thought I would try to incorporate an Easter project into this color combination. It's not typical Spring/Easter colors, but I think it works!

I've made these cute little boxes in years past, but I thought that little bow tie from Dapper Dad would be an adorable addition - whatcha think? Does it work for Easter??

Here's the back view. It is simply adhered to a Sizzix Fancy favor box!

Here's a quick little tutorial for you:

1. Punch a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Sizzix Top Note die.
2. Punch (2) pieces of Whisper White cardstock using the smallest of the Oval Framelits.
3. Emboss all three pieces using the cheveron embossing folder (boy) and/or Lacy Brocade embossing folder.
4. Punch (2) Basic Gray (boy) and/or Melon Mambo ovals from the large oval punch and adhere them to the embossed ovals.
5. Adhere the ears to the top note.
6. Stamp the bow tie image onto Whisper White cardstock using Daffodil Delight ink.Cut.
7. Punch (2) Whipser White cardstock circles. 
8. Punch a small heart from Melon Mambo cardstock.
9. Punch (2) 1/2" circles from Basic Gray cardstock.
10. Punch (1) 1/2" circle from Melon Mambo cardstock.
11. Adhere the heart to the top of the two 1" circles.
12. Adhere the Melon Mambo circle underneath the (2) circles.
13. Lightly sponge Melon Mambo ink to the (2) circles.
14. Add whiskers with a Basic Gray marker.
15. Adhere the entire piece to the top not using Stampin' Dimensionals.
16. Adhere the bow tie to the top note using Stampin' Dimensionals.
17. Using a white gel pen, add a little highlight to the eyes.
18. Add a Melon Mambo bow to the ear for a girl bunny.
19. Adhere the entire top note to a pre-made fancy favor box.
20. Fill wil grass and yummy candy treats or plastic eggs!
