I haven't been able to play QFTD in soooo long, but when I saw this card by Denise, resqbarbie, I just knew it was an opportunity for me to make a birthday gift box card I've been wanting to do.
I changed the color, a little of the layout, added an ef, bow, border punch and jewels.
I made this bow quite awhile ago and I just knew it would come in handy one day. I used it as the bow on top of the gift box. I know it has stripes and the rest have circles, but I like the combination. I added Spots and Dots ef, Nestie Squares, EK Success Border Punch and some beautiful jewels at the bottom on the border punch sent to me by my punchie pal and twinzi, AudreyAnn. Thanks Audzi - I knew I would find a perfect place for them.
I used very vanilla and black along with K&C DP. I love their dp. I popped up the gift box with dimensionals along with the sentiment in the center of the box.
That's about it. ENJOY YOUR REIGN Denise as you certainly deserve it. I forgot to link your card:

OMGoodness Twinzi - this is A-MAZING!!!! Wow, love the combo of circles and stripes - the colors bring everything together so no worries there, love love love all the bling. You have taken that bow to a new level with your wonderful bling treatment my punchie friend!!! And I love the vanilla - it's such a softer version of white and somehow makes your card/giftbox even more elegant. Love this beauty!!! See you Saturday :)!

This is gorgeous Pamzi. I love the stripes and circles together-I don't think there are any rules about using them together anymore. It used to be that way in clothing-but just take a walk in Walmart and look at what people are wearing.....lol I love your bow and the pretty embellishments on it. This is one super terrific card!
