Creation Station Birthday Bonanza Blog Hop

It's a Birthday Bonanza theme for our Creation Station Blog Hop this month.  This theme is always perfectly timed because birthdays fill everyones calendars all year long.  What's really cool in my family is that many of us share a birthday with cousins or aunts or uncles.

For this hop I thought it would be fun to share some springy and cheerful birthday projects knowing that the cool, crisp, and wet days of winter are fading, that spring is in the air, and blossoms will soon be bursting where I live.
This "for you" mini box is tiny and totally adorable.  I made it using the Popcorn Box.  I added a few folds to create the milk box shape and topped it with a Tea Lace Doily.  I used the Oh So Succulent stamps and the Bermuda Bay Ombre Pad to make the background paper for both the box and the card.  The ombre pad is a fabulous look with all the varieties of succulents in the stamp set.
The Emerald Envy Ribbon and Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine pair up nicely with both Pink Pirouette
 and Mint Macaron.
