Penny Black BFF's

We all like to make projects that make our friends smile. This darling little Penny Black stamp is definitely one of my favorites and sure makes me smile!

I colored the image with copics and added the little piggies with pop dots on to a fun little gift box designed by Lori Whitlock and cut with my Silhouette. I added  some glittery 'sky' paper and a little green Polka dot grass (don't we all want glittery clouds and  polka dot grass for real? LOL). I cut the BFF letters with my Silhouette and added a little May Arts ribbon tied to the top to finish off the scene.

This is a nice size box for a little present. I enlarged the box using a 115% setting-that way I could  use the complete width of the  12x12 piece of paper. The finished box size is 4 3/8 by 3 5/8 x 1 3/4.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
