Simply Magnolia (DT) - Hearts and Love

Aahhhh, we are nearing that time of the year when all the lovebirds throughout the world go gagga!  Yep, I'm talking about Valentine's Day... To get you in the mood, at Simply Magnolia we have a wonderful challenge for you... Make whatever you like. as long as it is made with Love and has Hearts on it.

Our DT have come up with some stunning creations for your inspiration, so do pay the blog a visit and show some L-O-V-E, will you?

I decided to alter a little box which I've kept from Christmas... a Christmas cake was in it and I just knew the box would come in handy for this kind of project.  OK... enough waffling, here's my altered box.  I have used Valentino from Magnolia's Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection to decorate.

And here's a close up of Valentino.  I used gorgeous white satin ribbon, some decorative pins, pearls, flowers, cut out some hearts and covered with glitter to decorate the lid of the box.  The red nestie is one of the Marianne's Designs.  The sentiment is from a reel of ticket-type Valentine sentiments that I have in my stash.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is The Ribbon Girl.  Do pay them a visit. They have a stunning collection of  products for your crafty needs.

Thanks for popping by, wishing you a lovely Sunday. Good luck!

hugs Sharon x
