IC227, CTD87, CCEE1014, TPE61 Silhouette Gift Idea

Happy weekend everyone!!!

We are off to a wedding today!!! I stayed up way toooooo long and  I'll probably regret it in the morning...yikes!!! I blame it on Mona, Pam, Stephanie ....*wink*!!! Yes...it's all their fault...LOL..., they keep blowing me away with their fabulous creations!!!

Here is what happened... I recently won a Lauren Meader template...wahooo....and every time I stop by one of these ladies blog (Mona, Pam and Stephanie) they have another amazing *Gift Set* done. Here I am still haven't printed my fabulous prize out.....I guess my bad conscience kicked in....and I FINALLY did it!!! I made my first *Slip Cover* Box and I created a matching card as well. May I just say...this is one fabulous template...so easy to work with...love it!!!




The colors were inspired by this weeks CTD87 - using Pink, Gray and Olive. My inspiration came from a few different Challenges this week... IC227 - Home Sweet Germany. We are challenged to make a card that inspires us from our home town, state or country. Well....I grew up in a beautiful town called *Ebermannstadt* which is located in Franconia/Bavaria, Germany . We were surrounded by acres of beautiful flower fields and I will never forget the smell and the beauty of them!!! Unfortunately I haven't travel home in a few years, but hopefully this fall I can take a trip back to memory lane!!! 
 
So when I saw todays IC227 and the CCEE1014 Challenge - using Silhouette images. I knew I had to use my favorite ISC Nature Silhouette I Set!!!  My favorite thing to do with this Set is using the *Misting with Water* technique. My theme also fits this weeks Pink Elephant #61 Challenge - using a Nature themed image.

The gorgeous Basic Gray Satin Ribbon and the Buttons are from Stampin' Up. The super cute Flower Dies are from PTI. I finished both projects off with some piercing and the Silver Pearls. Oh and before I forget I also scored the bottom part of the Slip Cover Box. Hope you like it!?!

Have a fabulous weekend and thank you for stopping by!!!

STUNNING Silke - love this card AND you totally rocked your first MTME template. I love what you did with Slip Cover. You were so sweet to leave a shout out for a couple of us MTME girls - thank you Silke. I have a DD living in Germany and have been twice in the past year - she's up in Frankfurt but it's SO lovely - I hope I get to go again before she moves on to somewhere new. I bet your part of DE is gorgeous with all the flowers. Meanwhile - keep up the great work, I am always inspired when I visit your blog :-)

I too have been watching Lauren's new goodies...and you did a bang up job on this one!!! Did you use the SCAL? I have been thinking of purchasing one just because Lauren has that technique...But if I can do it without the SCAL, I would rather...and what pray tell did you put in the box???

Dawn Easton said...

Oh my goodness girl! These are jaw dropping gorgeous! Wow!
Hope the wedding is beautiful today!
