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!!!
