Piece of Quiet

Although I have seen a few elegant tissue box holders (click for a terrific video by GinaK), my creations tend to lean towards the cute side. With the pretty swirls, I probably could have used a more elegant stamp, but this sweet little boy stamp from Penny Black was just itching to be inked. :)

I thought I had more pomegranate DP, so that I could stick with just the pom and the kiwi kiss colors, but alas I did not, so a little groovy guava was added to the design. I think the colors really work well together, but I was actually planning on pom and kiwi to match my parent's decor so that I could give my mom a little something to put her cards in.
Card details:
Stamp: Piece of Quiet
CS/DP: SU pomegranate and kiwi kiss, DP groovy guava
Ink: Tuxedo Black Momento
Tools: Nestabilities, cuttlebug birds and swirls folder, white gel pen, Copic markers
Embellishments: Rose red double stitched ribbon and tiny buttons from Rhonna Christmas collection

Well, practice, practice . . . I guess the next one will be for her. I have a couple more tissue boxes saved up. I will have to see if I can come up with a more elegant design. :)
Happy Stampin N Scrappin, Everyone! Don't miss out on the KL SNS challenge. You have until Friday night.

So cute, Kelly! I was thinking it was such a sweet image and then I read the sentiment -- it's still cute, but only after the fact ;) !

This is the first tissue box holder I've seen; thanks for the link!
