With Love

Happy Friday everyone!!! I'm excited for the weekend to FINALLY be here...I'm worn the heck out, and as you saw yesterday, I have a little house cleaning to do, *wink wink* hehehe.

Today I want to share a little sumthin' I made for the current challenge on The Shabby Tea Room blog.

This weeks theme is "Romantic" and we were to use lace, pearls & flowers...

Here's my take on the theme....

I've never used one of those fancy pearl flourish pieces before...someone should seriously slap me if I ever try again, lol! A gal needs a couple of extra hands to put one on...ohh my gosh, that was hard and frustrating!! I had a little paper left from Paulina's birthday card do I stamped the solid decorative crest on it and used it for a pretty little accent piece to the floral pp from the same 6X6 paper pad. The little comb and mirror are actually stamps that I fussy cut and who doesn't love a pretty little skeleton key, I have such a soft spot for them! For my sentiment, I wanted to use the same paper that I used under the cabochon, but I didn't have a big enough piece. After a little thought, I decided to make my own by stamping the Paper Sweeties sentiment randomly in a light ink and then in the dark ink. And speaking of that darling little cabochon, I made that along with all of the roses!! I used molds from Mold Muse and paper clay. After they were dry I simply spritzed them. The pearl flourish originally had little tan roses so I replaced them with my little teal ones to make everything match perfectly. :)
Hope you like my take on the inspiration photo and remember that today is the last day to comment to win a Paper Sweeties gift certificate...deets can be found here. And my other birthday give a way is still going, you have until the end of the month...deets for that can be found here!
Have a great weekend everyone!
