ELEGANT SOLE:



This was such fun to make, and went together very quickly.  A perfect gift for those shoe mad friends!

I used Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Papers, Papertrey Ink Kraft Cardstock, Wild Orchid Paper Rose and a Crystal Flourish from The Ribbon Girl.

TRAY CHIC:


This is such a beautiful tray and a gorgeous way to present a special gift.

Once again I've used Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Papers and Papertrey Ink Kraft Cardstock edging it with white acrylic paint.  I used Papetrey Ink's Large Heart Die and Butterfly Dies to embellish it along with Shear Heart Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl.

I'm new here and thrilled with the elegant designs. I don't know all of the challenges that you have, but I love any project that involves making a box! I'm also crazy about ribbon. It can make any card, box or bag so much prettier.

Love the tray! :) I have not had the chance to join any challenges, but I would love to try a card making challenge. I just love looking at entries in these types of challenges. :)

Dani said...

These awesome templates look lovely with a vintage design on them. Which is wonderful since my favorite kind of challenge is one that has to do with vintage creations. I absolutely adore the pearls you used on the Elegant Sole. What better way to say Elegant than with pearls!!! And the butterfly you put on the Trey Chic is beautiful. I love the colors you used as well. Very nicely done.

Your shoe looks like it could be used as a favor at a wedding shower, very pretty! Love the pearls you added. I like theme challenges or those that allow me to try a new technique.
