I Hope you all are having a FABULOUS Friday. Today's project is a Challenge hosted by Mandy at Limelight. Every month she challenges her design team to a project. This months project was to make a Valentine gift and matching card for a friend. PERFECT!! I love challenges, and was more than happy to create a project for my friends.
You see, I have 2 very good friends that are serious card makers, and they are also my my partners and crime on my shopping trips, so I made each of them a mini tote bag filled with mini snickers, and a matching card. My tote bag was inspired by Beth Matson.
Once again, I have used Lilly & Billy set by Pink Cat Studio, and Bittersweet DP by basic grey. I also used 2 different sized Prima flowers. All can be purchased at Limelight.
While making this card, I ran out of red gems. So I took clear gems and colored them with my copic markers. They worked perfectly. You have got to love the Copics.
If you have not had a chance to visit Limelight Papercrafts, now is the time to head over there. They are having a SALE and have a CLEARANCE section at the store!
