Roses are Red - Mid month reminder

Just dropping by with a little reminder that this month's challenge at BTC&G  is "Roses are Red", sponsored by Template Dreams who have given  a voucher for $5 for the lucky winner to spend in their online shop.

So there is still plenty of time to enter your romantic rosy creations and for a bit of inspiration here is the Valentine card I made for Himself

The papers are Prima " Annalee, the flowers are made with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, the butterflies are a CC designs die, and the central flower shape is made by stamping an embossing a Hero Arts heart stamp 6 times and cutting it out. The corner embellies are a metal filigree square I cut in half.  Butterflies and hearts are inked with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  The "LOVE" and the little die cut plaque are from my stash.
Hope ye all had a great Valentines Day and don't forget to enter the challenge!

Roses are Red - February challenge at By the Cute and Girly

This month at BTC&G the theme is "Roses are Red", chosen by Tammy and sponsored by Template Dreams who have given  a voucher for $5 for a lucky winner to spend in their online shop.

So we would love to see all your romantic makes featuring roses etc    possibly with Valentine's Day in mind?

I decided to use the sponsors digi papers to decorate an altered/recycled biscuit box.  The lovely rose on the front of the box is part of a napkin kindly supplied by my lovely blogging friend Annette....then I filled the box with some Roses chocs and added a little Tim Holtz hitch fastener to close it.  The chocs were devoured by my OH who thought Valentine's Day had come early.
Before I got to altering the box looked like this:

So I cut across about 2/3rds of the way down the front and cut down to the base on each side..

 After covering with the sponsors digi papers and adding the rose from the napkin and some paper flowers, ribbon and bow from stash...

More details, rules etc of this months challenge are Here
So please pop over and see all the Design Team's lovely makes.
Happy Crafting
