Paper Sundaes Challenge #69 - Birthday Celebration

It's time to celebrate!!  It's Paper Sundaes Challenge #69 and we are having a birthday celebration!!  Not our birthday but one of our DT founding members Christine just celebrated a birthday and we decided Birthday Celebrations would be the theme this week!  HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY CHRISTINE!!  Our fabulous monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring the challenge this week and I used a Magnolia Image called Balloon Tilda   which I coloured with copics.
Now I decided to make my first ever box instead of a card this week and I'll definitely do it again.  I used DP by imaginisce and Stampin UP.  I cut the image out with nesties and added some white liquid applique to add some texture around the scallop oval.  I also added glossy accents to the balloon.

The above picture shows the box from the side.  To open you slide off the band which has the image attached and the box opens.  

NOW....I would love to tell you what is in the box however it is a SURPRISE!!  I will be mailing out to our DT member Christine for her birthday.  Shana, another founding member of Paper Sundaes is having a contest in honour of Christine's birthday.  It is only open to 40 participants and in order to enter you need to create a birthday card and send it to Christine.  The prize will be a $20 gift certificate to a store of the winner's choice - which will be doubled to $40 if you post about the contest on your sidebar!!  The winner of Shana's contest will be drawn once all cards have been received by Christine.  This will coincide with our Paper Sundaes Challenge so you can enter in both!   How perfect is that?  A chance to win two separate contests with basically the same challenge!!  I sure hope you will play along with us! 

We also have a few new Sundae Girls joining our DT!!  A big welcome to the new girls:


Be sure to check out their blogs, their work is AMAZING!!
