This week's Penny Black challenge is "buttons galore" and I've made a tag to attach to a flower bouquet or a parcel. I actually think it might qualify for the Secret Crafter's "new beginnings" as well since the single candle on the cake means the tag can be used for anniversary gifts (me and hubby are celebrating 10 years of marriage this July, let's hope for his sake he remembers)
Today I went to town cause eight - yes 8 - scrap companies had put their goods up at a local school for a scrap event this weekend. Pittying my poor, neglected garden I had decided not to dedicate this weekend to crafting - other than with garden gloves on - but I never promised myself not to shop today :), so I came home with a new flower punch, more perfect pearls from Tim Holtz, papers (of course) and some bits and bobs from the pearl shop. I had to try it out and decided on the Just Magnolia challenge which is "getting in shape" this week. I made a gift box using the flower punch and the newly purchased flower center part, spraying it with home made glimmer made from the perfect pearls. You can't really tell from the picture but the flower is very sparkly in reality.
