Altered Acrylic Gift Box of Cocoa

This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER - Benzi. I found my inspiration in her CHRISTMAS TREAT SET. I also included this weeks challenge from the STAMPIN' B'S - Use a Beverage and this weeks challenge from OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Let It Snow. I have had this box that I got a stamp set in and been wanting to use it so today was the boost. I used some Vanilla CS for the strip around the box stamped with the 4 different snowflakes in pretty in pink ink from a set released last year by TREEHOUSE STAMPS - Christmas Favorites and then the cup from Friends and Lattes' also from Treehouse Stamps in espresso ink then colored with copics E30, RV10 & RV11. My color combo is from this weeks TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE #028 - CC (Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Choc Chip). I punched the focal image and layer using Marvy's Giga and Extra Giga oval scallops then doodled around with choc chip marker and white jel pen. I also covered the circles on the cup with stickles. HOpe you like it.
