Reveal Day! PTT 49

I can't even tell you how excited I am! I've kept this secret for weeks, and it's been KILLING me! But today is Reveal day, and I can finally tell you all! I have the incredible honor of being a new member of the fabulous design team at Party Time Tuesdays!!!! I couldn't be more happy or more thrilled! Every Tuesday, PTT hosts fabulous challenges with incredible prizes and fabulous sponsors and a ton of amazing DT creations for inspiration! This week is PTT challenge number 49 "Something new you got for the holidays".

We're being sponsored by the fabulous Crafts and Me for a prize and the uber gorgeous images of the Wax Fruit Company! Wax Fruit was SO generous with the DT and sent us each an image to play with! I chose the gorgeous Kindness Seed Packet for my card. I simply could not resist it!

I printed the image several times at various sizes on my printer, colored the beautiful pansies with copics on my main image and then cut that out with Spellbinders Lacy Squares (NEW for Christmas!). I then fussy cut several pansies from my extra print outs, coloring those with copics as well. I shaped the cut pansies with my bone folder slightly, and popped them up on pop dots next to the seed packet. for a bit of sparkle and dimension, I highlighted many of the pansies with Glossy Accents, finishing off with a simple yellow bow and a pinky purple stick pin to highlight those colors in the paper (K and co Watercolor Bouquet). I created a tiny tag out of a tiny paper bag containing a few pansy seeds, and adhered directions for planting on the front of the tag, slipping it behind the the lacy squares. Easy peasy and as simple as that!

And lucky me!  I had the opportunity to do a SECOND card with the BEAUTIFUL image from Crafts and Me.

Isn't this image GORGEOUS? I colored her in copics,,,,,
I created the focal point from nesties,,,,,,,,from the bottom up, lacey squares, fleur di lis, pendants, 2 layers of Holly motifs, angled slightly differently, and circles large was used to cut the image out.

Here's a close up of the layers and this stunning image!
The bow is a triple butterfly bow made with two different color ribbons. I left the tails of the gold ribbon long and allowed them  to peek out the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed, and I appreciate your stopping in! Run, do not walk, to PTT and enter this challenge for a chance at a fabulous prize! And while you're there, take a look at the new DT members work and revisit the talent of the Senior DT. I promise,,,,it's worth it!
