Fancy Friday-Pretty Packages

Welcome to another Fancy Friday! Be sure to continue on the hop to see what everyone has to share, I am SURE you are gonna LOVE everything!

Before I share this week's challenge and my project, I have an announcement to make! I forgot to post the winner from last month's Fancy Friday giveaway. . . apologies. . . so, before I forget yet again, the winner of the Trim the Tree DSP stack is. . . . .

Rosemarie Calpin!

Rosemarie, please e-mail me your address, and I will get that mailed to you ASAP!

Now, onto this month's Fancy Friday Challenge. . .  for this moth we chose the theme "Pretty Packages". If there is one thing I love more than shopping for the perfect gift, it is wrapping it up! To me, taking a little extra time to package up that perfect gift and make it look pretty shows just how much you really care about the person you are giving it to.

Although I have branched out the past couple of years into more bolder colors, my favorite is still the soft, subtle, tone-on-tone look, especially when used with neutrals! Here I used the Gift Box Punch Board to create a Very Vanilla box, and then decorated it with neutral embellishments. Now I just need to find the perfect gift to put in it. . .

Curious to see what Cathy has made? Me too! It's ultra FANCY I'm sure of it! Let's head on In the Cat Cave and check it out!
