Day 11 Decorated Gift Box Oct 27

I started out with white cardstock and stamped the cardinals from the Cardinals in Winter stamp set randomly with Memento ink.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set randomly as well.  I colored the images in with Copic markers.  I used the paper to cover a jewelry gift box and I also cut a tag out of it as well with a SU! tag punch.  The twine, ribbon and paper are all from Mark's Finest Papers.
Thanks for coming by!
