"An Elegant Spring!"

Hi Blog Friends!

First of all, I want to remind you about my challenge & give-away!
Today, at 6 p.m. the challenge will be closed,
 so you'll want to jump right in quickly so you don't miss out on the give-away!
I'll be watching for your entries!

Today, I have something special to share with you!
 Remember me telling you about a box I mailed off last week, to a sweet lady?
 Just a little background... I began following someone's blog quite awhile back & I was blessed that she noticed my comments & contacted me! 
What a sweet lady!
She sent me one of her fabulous cards (which sits on my desk now), & even some goodies! 
So, I thought I would surprise her in return! 
She loves color & butterflies!
 So, I wanted to incorporate these things into my project. 
Of course, I had to use Flourishes Images! 
Take a peek at what I made her!
I call it,
 "An Elegant Spring!"
 I wanted a white on white look, but it's hard for me to leave it like that, LOL.

I just have to add gold with my Gold Krylon Pen. Gold just makes things elegant.

I used Flourishes- A Year in Flowers-2, along with
 Flourishes- Classic Hourglass Template Die.
Coloring my images with Prisma Color Markers (Alcohol).

The inside, sentiment is done with Flourishes- Picking Wildflowers.
I used SU- Elegant Lines Embossing Folder, MS- Crystal Fine Glitter & Best Occasions- Glitter Paper Pack, along with Paper Studio & Kaiser Craft pearls.

There's more!

One of my China Tea Cups made with the same set, Flourishes- A Year In Flowers 2 & filled with
 Hershey's Extra Creamy Milk Chocolate with Toffee & Almonds!
OH YUM!

Some of the details? 
My little tag is made with Flourishes- Classic Tags & Template Dies &
Flourishes- Tiny Flowers & Tags Stamp Set. (The back says, "Just for You.")
Notice the little dew drops on the rosette?
 Those are Paper Studio Rhinestones.

And notice the Butterflies?
 Those are from Flourishes- Old Tea Rose & 
 Flourishes- Friendship & Flowers, both are Sam Pickard's designs.  Just attached with glue dots.
I love the butterfly on the cellophane bag, because it looks like it's actually flying!

Here you can see the inside sentiment for the Tea Cup.
 I used Flourishes-Old Tea Rose again, by Sam Pickard.
 The little flourish & bee are from
 Flourishes- Tiny Flowers & Tags. 

Here is the Gift Combo, "An Elegant Spring!"

Do you think she'll like it?
I know she'll like the chocolate! Who doesn't love chocolate? LOL
