Have a Happy Day

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone!
 I hope your having a fantastic day!
Today, I have a fun little box to share with you. I made it to hold some chocolates and a gift card for a friends birthday. Of course, the gift card for this buddy is for a craft store~I don't know about you.. but for me, a gift card in a craft store is truly celebrating like a kid in a candy store!!! LOL!
I cut the gable box at 4" from the Artiste cartridge. The 3 pattern papers I used are from a DCWV paper stack called La Creme. It's an older stack but I sure like the papers!
The label is a Spellbinders Fancy Frame Tags 2. I distressed the edges with frayed burlap and then used sparkling ice glitter along the edges. I stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's Build A Birthday stamp set. The flower is created with  My Craft Spot's Daisy and Rolled Roses flower metal dies and then rolled in sparkling ice glitter along with a fun gem in the center. I tucked in these pretty leaves cut from Poppystamps Dies called the Lovely Tendril die.
I tied on a bow with Midnight Black crinkle ribbon, added a small flower from stash and a cute little tag. For the tag I used the Ting Tags metal die and then stamped the sentiment with the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set and inked the edges with frayed burlap.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Scrapy Land Challenge #1 Anything Goes
(need to incorporate one (or more) die brands that Scrappy Land sells (Poppystamps & Spellbinders)
2.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #120 Glitter & Sparkle

    It has been so darn chilly feels like fall already. I'm sitting on the couch with a blanket, considering turning on the fireplace!! It's September for goodness sake!! I do love fall but am so not ready for what comes next :/ We usually go on vacation around the same time but I'm not going this year...I have family from Seattle coming to visit instead. So you are probably getting all ready to go!! I hope you have a fabulous Sunday my friend!! Big hugs :)
