Pile It On! Challenge - Blue, Blue, Blue!

This week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'Blue, Blue, Blue!'
We'd like to see three shades of blue on your projects

We are sponsored for this challenge by

Prize - $15 voucher to spend in Krisi's Kreations!
There are lots of fabulous templates, fonts and hybrid projects in the the winner is in for a real treat! 

The DT were allowed to choose something from the store to play with for this challenge, and I went for the Cake Slice gift box...I've always fancied having a go at one of these! I chose three shades of blue Core'dinations card, and printed the template on to the lightest piece. Once I'd cut and folded the template, I decorated it using my EK Success 'Scalloped Dimaonds' border punch, my Cuttlebug 'D'Vine Swirls' folder, and my new 'Tattered Florals' die. I attached the flower in using a jewelled brad from Craft Obsessions, and used a piece of seam binding ribbon (from the Ribbon Girls) dyed using Distress Inks to hold the box closed.

Here's a view of the top:

Here are the challenges I've Piled On!:
