Glitz up your 4th!!!!

I made this box in a bag for my SS filled with candy (: I used paper from Glitz Design and found it to work beautifully. The flower is a large Bazzil flower that i had on hand and the center is a SU stamp. Here is the SCS tutorial if you would like to make one. 
This is a HM paper bag card I made. I colored this image with Copics and highlighted the lemon center, flower and mouses nose with Stickles. HM is soooo fun to color and I carry a large selection in my online store so take a look. The background flower is a large Bazzil I had on hand. The paper is GLitz Design. If you have never used Glitz paper you really should try it! I am in love with quality paper (: By the way I stuck a Kool Aide pink lemonade pack in the back pouch of this card. 
I hope you all in the U.S. have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!! DH and I are biking 50 miles to a B&B tomorrow and 50 miles back on the 4th. I am so excited!!!!!! 
Tell me about your plans (:

That is A LOT of biking! holy cow! Enjoy your weekend! I'm be doing the exact opposite of you - sleeping in!! - then FINALLY creating my stamping space!

Your creations are awesome! I really love that giant flower on the box and the mouse image is just the cutest thing and his flower reminds me of the big flower behind him and the one above on the box. Great job!
