For this challenge I knew I needed to have some sort of flower on my card. I thought I'd finally give a ribbon flower a go. Turns out it is easier than I thought. Especially if you have some of the Sticky Strip pages. I literally punched out a circle and stuck the ribbon to it as I twisted it around. Didn't take more than a minute or 2 and this is the flower I had. Turned out pretty good I thought.
I wanted to use a pin with some beads but in all honesty an Antique brad would have done nicely as well. I entered this card in Just Us Girls challenge #69. They are looking for flowers! I also entered these projects in Hand Stamped Sentiments Theme Challenge #53. They want something with black and some shade of red.
Love this Love Letter DSP. It is perfect for this Valentine season. I decided to make a gift box to go with the card. I happened to be blog hopping a little and came upon this box by Donna of Butternut Sage Designs. I thought it was stunning and oddly enough it matched my card to a T. So I thought I'd borrow a few ideas.
Another first here. I have never made a box explosion (I think that is what it is called) and wanted to give it a go. I spent so much time on the outside that I decided to leave the inside a little plainer.
I topped off the box with a big bow, some buttons stacked up and a bit of bling. I curled a few strips of DSP and slipped them in to add a little more colour.
Come and celebrate with us at Stampin' Celebration!
Thanks for stopping by!
