Grateful

I needed a little gift for a special someone, so I thought I would combine a couple challenges!  The first is the CAS challenge 31 at SCS, which is to pop it up---not difficult for me at all!  The second is a new one for me, the color challenge #6 at Pals Paper Arts.  Here are the colors:

I can't show you what's inside my little gift box, that might spoil the surprise!  But here's the finished product--a little clean and simple pizza box, 2 1/2" square, which I originally adapted from Jen DelMuro's pattern; I believe it is on SCS as well.
