Sunday Challenge and 25 Days of Christmas Creations Day 12

Hello! Happy Sunday and welcome to Day 12 of my 25 Days of Christmas Creations here at the Crafty Scrapper! Thank you so much for visiting. Also, you can go to my post dated November 30th to see what all the hoop la is about :)
This is also a Sunday Challenge creation with my Blog group the Paper Princesses!
AnnMarie is our Sunday Challenge hostess. I missed last week's challenge, to make a box card. I finally got it made and went ahead and combined it with this week's challenge to use this picture:

as inspiration for our creation. In making my box card I realized....I'm out of lime green paper! EKKKKKKKKKK! I've gotta get more! So, I had to compromise just a little with the green.

I used a piece of paper from a My Mind's Eye Stack for the tree and sleeve. The black polka dot paper is from a retired SU! pack. The scalloped pink is Melon Mambo. I had fun with my nesties and embossing folders for the circles. The tree image is studio g.

Here's the box card without the sleeve wrapped around. The melon mambo c/s came in handy where I placed it b/c the card was a little uneven at the opening. LOL! Nothing like covering up a boo boo with some pretty scallops :)

...and here's the card open. Hey AnnMarie, does the little goody inside look familiar? :D
I had a great time making this box card. Here's a link to the tutorial: BOX CARD

Have a great day!
Until next time...
Blessings...

Hey Melina, this is GREAT! Thanks for yet another great idea and instructions. What-oh-what are we going to do after Christmas is over?! I like the colors you used better than the bright green, but that's just me!
