For my project I used Cuddle Dragon from Meljen's Designs. Isn't he just the cutest thing ever!! I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Copics.

Copics:
Green: YG11, YG06
Peach: R01, YR02
Blue: BG53, BG57

I made another 4x4 mini pizza box. I LOVE these things! They come together so quickly and are great for fitting a gift card inside. I think having a stash of them is great for a last minute gift!
 
 These are the additional supplies I used:
Ribbon (Hobby Lobby), Dream Tag (Tim Holtz), White Georgia Pacific Cardstock (Walmart), Black Cardstock (Walmart), The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye), Bow Easy, Scor-pal, Scor-tape, Fabri-Tac Glue, Cherry Blossoms (from a friend)
 
 
Now it's your turn! Link up your NEW project featuring the color pallet above along with your FAVORITE color image on the Designed to Color Blog. Please have DTC linked back to your blog post as well.

Have a great week!
Rosie :)

You know that I like these boxes, right? I'm determined to make one over the weekend. I agree with what you said - that they are great for those last minute gifts.
Yours turned out beautifully! Hugs! xx

This is so adorable. I am going to look at copying your pizza box. I love how you colored the dragon up, and I really really love the striped ribbon around the box!
