MDUC #114


Well here we are again for another MDUC challenge and I almost freakin forgot to post it!  Had my card done early in the week, took pictures but just forgot to write the post.  HOLI COW REALLY?!!  Remembered an hour before - and I really wonder how.  AND I was making a card!!  ha ha ha!!  Phew occupied or what?!  I am soooo laughing at myself right now!

SO this week at MDUC we were asked to use this photo for inspiration, which is so pretty.  Immediately my mind went to Kaisercrafts "Chanteuse Collection" filled with greens, pinks and browns. 

I wanted to do more then just a card and who wouldn't want a gift on their birthday anyway?  So I made this cute little box filled with Hershey Kisses.  It's made so you can fit Dove chocolates inside but I went to 3 different stores and couldn't find any!!  Pout pout!  I found this tutorial done by Katie from Clearly iStamp and instead of using the biggest nesties, I used my Silhouette.  Way easier for me!!

Instead of using a button as Katie had in the tutorial, I made a handle instead.  The sentiment is from Magnolia and the butterfly is a Maya Road chipboard butterfly that I distressed in green ink and then added Crackle Accents. 

I wanted to try something a little different and went with the center step card (tutorial here) but  just added an inch to make it wider.  I had fun with this one!!

Ok so since I'm a little behind today I won't be adding any details but please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like some information.

Today I'm going to enter my card into the following:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Card Makin' Mama's - Let's Get Punchy
Addicted to Stamps - Anything But a Card - my chocolate box
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday Time
Enjoy your weekend all!!  Hugs!
