The sentiment is from the For the Birds Set from Stampin Up.  the background is vellum hearts paper over a Pretty in Pink Striped paper, it was a way of adding some pink, and keeping it soft.

Baker's Apron Treat Box

Hi All this is my newest project for the new challenge at Open-minded Crafting Fun. The challenge is to make a project with an occupation in mind or using office supplies. Well I decided to go with the occupation and what baker doesn't always need some extra sprinkles. This apron template came from AR designs, and is available in the store. I cut it out with my Cameo Silhouette, and the great thing about this design is she gives you the svg files not just for the box, but also the insert, and also the pieces for putting designer paper on it if you choose to. I chose to only use designer paper on part of it as I wanted Luigi, which is an image from one of our sponsors Digital Delights on the front of it. I have also used a tag from the Birthday Bakery set, and the paper is from the Sweet Shop  DSP pack. and the ribbon is the Island indigo ruffled ribbon.    Our other sponsors for the challenge are
Aurora Wings, Sentimental Susan, Faery Ink, and Scrappers Delight, so lots of prizes available, so come join us won't you. Thanks for looking

Butterflies a Flutter

For my card this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge,  I have made my card using the Mother of Pearl Technique. It's very simple. Using glossy card stock, I die cut the butterflies, and then I stamped them with the image from the Elements of Style stamp set, one of my favorite sets that retired. I then colored it in with my Promarkers using Blossom, Dusky Rose, and Olive. After that is done, then use a piece of Saran Wrap  and some White Shimmer paint and dab over the image, it gives it an old fashioned mother of pearl look. I then distressed it some with the antique linen distress ink by Ranger, I used stamens for the antennae of the butterflies.
For the card it self, I have used Pink Pirouette card base, added a layer of Chocolate Chip which I embossed with a folder from Provocraft, called floral screen, then added some white bakers twine with a bow, The sentiment is from the Flight of a Butterfly stamp set.
Thanks for looking Cindy

Then I've added a wooden guitar which I painted with Purple Twilight paint from Ranger, then added a treble clef. For the final addition I have used glossy accents on the cymbals, and her glasses to give them a shine.
