UDI Blog Inspiration Challenge - It's Pretty Pink...!

Today's post opens with two disclaimers -
1) I'm working off a very old camera that I found in a drawer - it's so old even Photoshop won't recognize the software to download the pictures. So they are darker than normal.
That being said
2) You may still need sunglasses to view this project and the Inspiration piece - it's really Pink!

Ok, here you go:

Don't be distracted by the chocolate - it doesn't exist anymore anyway, it was very tasty!
It's pretty pink isn't it?

Well, what do you expect when this is your inspiration piece:

Yeah, baby! Now THAT's pink!
I really, really wanted to go to the store and buy some pink bunny peeps and design my own marshmallow sculpture, but since this is a PAPER crafting blog, I controlled myself. That and the fact that it was snowing like crazy outside kept me home. So, I did the next best thing - a pink box with a sparkly daisy containing equally, but not marshmallowey good chocolate!

Do you likey?
I actually likey VERY much!
I used the Bitty Box die and my Big Shot to cut out the box from Melon Mambo Cardstock.

The layered daisy, was cut out with my Daisies Die on the Big Shot using Melon Mambo Designer Paper - the polka dots pattern. I then inked them all up with Versamark and embossed them with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. I thought it mimiced the sugary Peeps bunnies very nicely!

I attached the daisies to the lid of the box with Mini Glue Dots and then added the Early Espresso Button from the Sweet Stitches Big Designer Buttons. See the blingy center? Yep - that's a Neutrals Glimmer Brad. I added that because my bff Tiffany was in my head saying "I don't like naked buttons!" Thanks for THAT mental picture Tiff!

Now let's move on to the yummy goodness inside the box -

I have a huge bag of Hershey Nuggets in the studio - it was new until I opened it for this project and now it's not so huge..... :)
So, I took out four of the silver wrapped ones and covered them with a piece of the Ice Cream Parlor Designer paper from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. You know, the FREE paper you can get with a $50 order! I also wrapped a 1/2" strip of it all around the box edge, just for pretty.

I was - help me, I can't resist - TICKLED PINK when I finished this project! heehee! Really, I liked how it turned out - what do YOU think?!

Be sure to stop by the UDI Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team pinked up for you!
Stamped, snowy blessings everyone!
