Petal Cone Die Box

Today's post is another thing I've been thinking about for a few weeks.  At our last Red Hot Stampers meeting our upline, Glenda, had all of us cut out two of the Petal Cone Dies using any color we wanted, and you guessed it....she asked us  to make something out of it.  For some odd reason I chose Always Artichoke ~ don't ask me why~ and now I needed to figure out what to do with it.  Well, that's where these challenges come to the rescue!  I saw challenge 56 from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  It was all about dies, and that's what I was doing.  So I decided to do a box and put some kind of flower on top... 

...but what color  should I use for my flower?  That's where my next challenge, #41 from Stampin' Celebration helped out.  I love the colors they put out there for us to use.  This challenge has shadowing on the table cloth that makes it appear green and the flowers were just the color I needed to go with Always Artichoke.

Thanks to all the ladies out there who put a lot of time and effort into these challenges for us!

I finally came up with this lovely box.  Not sure what kind of flower I would call it, but I think it looks similar to some pictures I've seen of some dahlias, so I'll go with that. :)  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Card Stock:  Always Artichoke, Rich Razzleberry & Whisper White
Classic Stampin' Pads:  Rich Razzleberry & So Saffron
Big Shot Dies:  Petal Cone & Daisies Flower #2
Punches:  Boho Blossoms & 1/2" Circle
Ribbon:  5/8" Grosgrain in Rich Razzleberry
Jewels:  Basic Pearls

I sponged the daisies with Rich Razzleberry and So Saffron then attached the three layers of the large daisy to each other and curled each layer to my liking.  I repeated the same step with two layers of the medium daisies and one layer of the small daisy. I attached it to the box with velcro, so it's relatively easy on and off.
