Day Three, Doing An ABC

Morning all!  Are you ready for  today's Bugaboo Birthday challenge?!!   Since we're celebrating turning two, your projects today should have two of something.  Two of anything,  you decide, be it papers, embellishments, images, whatever.  You decide!  Sound like fun?!!

It's my turn at Catch The Bug to make an ABC (anything but a card) project so I made a chocolaty floral arrangement with a gift tag attached using Bugaboo Stamps Heart Fairy.  I used two different colored wrappers on the chocolates, two ribbon colors and two designer papers although that one may be harder to spot.  Her dress is paper pieced.

To create the tag I printed the image on white card stock and designer paper.  I colored the image using Copic markers and then fussy cut just the dress  from the DP and added it to the colored image.  I added sentiment to the heart using my photo editing software.  The tag was cut using my Cricut and George cart.  A little glitter around the heart and the tag was done.

The chocolate arrangement was made by inserting  floral wire (16 GA) into Dove chocolates and attaching three leaf shaped pieces of tissue paper  to each stem with floral tape, just below the chocolate.  To add a little filler to it I twirled just the tops of a white pipe cleaner around a pencil.  The heart ribbons were made by twisting a pipe cleaner around  a bow and pulling it up into the shape of a heart.  You can't see it in the picture but I filled the vase with sparkly pom poms to give the stems some stability and make it pretty at the same time.

Other challenges I've entered this project:

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN
