Purple Mittens and Teal Boughs

Welcome to another fabulous Power Poppy'sPeep of the Week” challenge.  If you are new to our challenges, make sure you check out the Power Poppy Blog for all the creative details, right here.

If you don’t already know, purple, is one of my favourite colours!  And I try and use it whenever I can.  I was in need of a gift for my son’s teacher today as today is my son’s last day at his current school.  He’s off to a new school on Monday to begin a new way of learning and dealing with his emotions.  So for today’s challenge, I chose to showcase some purple on my cute little Fold Over Box Card.

I used the darling new stamp set “Bough Wow Wow” as my focal image for my box. 

Here’s a close up of my little box…

And when you open it up, it reveals a little box full of chocolate treats.

If you look closely, there’s a little “Thanks Bunches” stamped in the corner.  That’s one of the cute sentiments from the “Lavender” stamp set.

I love purple too - so you can never use it too much for me!! That box is just amazing! Excellent job coloring the mitten image!! Hope things work out better for your son in his new school!

I love this, the color is amazing and I like the background paper as well. Now I wish I had ordered this set also.

I'm sure the teacher's jaw dropped open when you handed her this lovely, lovingly created box!! Lady, you are something else. The color palette alone had me shaking my head in "How does she DO IT??", but add in your fabulous coloring and the fizzy pompoms, and then the box concept itself — I bow down in your honor! Best of luck to your little guy at his new school, hope it is a better fit for everyone! xoxo

How cute is that! I'm loving the purple on this, and the fold-over design of the box. It's as yummy as the treats it holds! Best of luck to your son in his new school. I'm betting everything will work out just fine.
