Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #132-"Christmas"

Good Monday morning dear crafty friends!

Welcome to my first post for today!

Today at Scrapbook Stamp Society we begin our "Christmas" challenge...we're going to be joining forces...both teams will post today as we begin our "Christmas" celebrations!!  We'd really LOVE for you to join us...we're always so excited to be inspired by you!  As this is our last challenge for 2017 Sherri Baldy has generously offered up an extra bonus...a free digi image!!  Check out the details at Scrapbook Stamp Society!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I made this book box for my granddaughter Mia...her sister Calla already claimed the first book box that I made...or as Calla calls it...a "treasure box"...
I painted it with white acrylic paint then dusted on Shabby Blue Frantage while wet then heated to emboss...
I surrounded the outer "book" area with lace and also to the top...
another view...
this darling little image reminds me SO much of sweet Mia...
I'm working with a Lil Rascal image #523 that you can find HERE...
coloured with my copics...
dusted with Chunky White Frantage...
I added LOTS of Glamour Dust to the fur areas and Glossy Accents on her eyes...
then I matted her on my fav...cheesecloth...
the bow layered with white and navy chiffon ribbon and this sparkly ribbon that I think I originally bought from Live and Love...
I stamped "Merry Christmas" with Stazon onto the white chiffon...
added a stick pin with bead and diamant√©  snowflake...
I am SO loving making these Foamiran poinsettias...I want to add them to everything...LOL!!...
I added it to another small bow that's layered with navy chiffon and the sparkly ribbon...
the larger snowflake was made with a Crealies floral die...topped with a navy rhinestone...
I stung a pearl strand from the top corner poinsettia through the bow and down the side ending at the snowflake...
I added random tiny snowflakes that are from a Martha Stewart border punch...
these I topped with tiny rhinestones...
the "treasure box" opened...
the DP is Maja Design from the Joyous Winterdays collection...
I made a gift card envelope that I will tuck a Starbuck's gift card into...the girls LOVE having their Christmas shopping traditional hot chocolate with Mommy and Daddy at Starbuck's...

And that is Miss Mia's "Treasure Box"!  Now it's time for you to hop on over to Scrapbook Stamp Society and check out the beautiful creations that my talented team mates have to show you...then come on over and join...you could be a lucky winner of a darling Sherri Baldy image!  And now here is a look at Sherri's gift for you...
