LOVE IS...at Wild Orchid Challenge
A very happy Monday to everyone! I hope you have all had a magnificent weekend and are moving into a fabulous week! I have done alot of resting up from last week's trip and I have been jet-lagged a gracious plenty!!! LOL...but I am ready to get back into the real swing of things...I think!!! And maybe very soon I can share with you some VERY EXCITING NEWS for me!!!! Does anybody want to guess??? Big Smile!!!!!
Today is the new challenge over at Wild Orchid Challenge and for this fortnight our theme is LOVE IS... and doesn't that sound fun!!!! We would love for you to come on over and join in with us...and you know there will be a magnificent prize, as always, from Wild Orchid Crafts. Jump over and have a peek and you will certainly want to try your luck this time!!!!
I made a card and candy box this time and I hope you like it! For the card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Sweet Cakes Collection by Doodlebug Designs, and all panels are machine stitched. The absolutely darling image is from the newest release at Stampavie called Sweet Romance by Sarah Kay. The image was colored with Copics, Flexmarkers, and Promarkers. For the horizontal I used Deep Red Satin Ribbon tied into a double flat bow to dangle a puffed heart from the Mixed Heart Charm Collection. For the upper left corner I used a lovely Venice Lace Applique Heart as a base for the Red Crochet Flowers which are centered with a white pearl and resting on Mulberry Paper Rose Leaves. I used Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften all corners.
The M&M box is 3 1/8" square and is by Create & Treasure. I trimmed it with more red satin ribbon and White Lace Trimming, adding a small double flat bow. I used the same red crochet flowers and rose leaves for the top corners and large pearls for the feet.
On the first panel on the inside I used a MM metal Love of a Lifetime sign on red satin ribbon. For the jotting panel I used a White Paper Doily, another red satin bow and red crochet flower with rose leaf, as well as a MM Adore metal sign.
I hope you like my little creation today and will decide to come on over to Wild Orchid Challenge and show us your interpretation of the LOVE IS... theme!!
Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come by often! Have a marvelous week and until the next time, I send big hugs!!
