Thank you all so much for entering my challenge last week!! We had some wonderful entries and it was lovely to see some non-traditional love themed projects there too!!!
We've a bit of news to share with you this week:
Join us next Tuesday for LCI's fabulous new releases and to celebrate, we're having a BLOG HOP!!! I love blog hops, they're so much fun!
Anyway, onto this week's challnege and the lovely Mary J set us the challenge this week to make anything BUT a card.... *gulp*!! When I initially saw this I did panic a little but then thought I'd make a scrapbook layout which I do do a lot of... then back in January it was a good friend's Birthday and I wanted to make her something special as she's very much into handmade items and altering things around her home to suit her own style! I bought a couple of CD tins from Head Ladybug Kerry a while back and wanted to use one to make a notecard set for my friend, she's always sending little notes with things so this was perfect! I'd asked her to clarify what her favourite colours were - white, pastel blue and baby pink and knew instantly which papers to use and what stamp too!!
Here's what I came up with....
This is Flower Ruby all coloured and glittered up!!! How stunning does she look with her pastel blue and glamour dusted wings!? And her pretty sparkling dress! The image is inked around the edges with Pixie Dust VersaMagic - I love these inks!!
Inside the tin are these 6 beautiful notecards I made! I used some Bazzill (Emma) and the gorgeous papers from MME (Mary Mary) which are in the sale and selling out fast! I added swarovski crystals to each card in a different way for a bit of variety and used the LCI sentiments "Just for you" and "Just a Note" to finish them off!
You can see the crystals and detail more here
Have a wonderful week everyone, I think I might have another post later in the week...
Take Care and "Thank you" Mary J for a wonderful challenge!!
