Guest Designer for Deep Ocean Challenge Blog

Hi everybody!!

My lovely colleague over at Whimsy Stamps Alberto Gava asked me to be his guest and join him and his talented co-designers over at the Deep Ocean Challenge Blog and of course I couldn't refuse. The team is absolutely amazing so I only hope my creation is a little bit what he expected when he asked me.

This bi-weekly challenge is SWEETIES, and it's sponsored by Miekelotte. Alberto told me that I was free to do something Halloween-like or not and since we don't celebrate Halloween here I decided to make a sweet gift for someone to send for Christmas. Here is the front:
The papers used are by Magnolia, Pebbles Inc and Doodlebug (velvet cardstock). The corners, pink ribbon and roses are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the little white flowers are Daisy Double Layer flowers that I bought from Creative Treasures, the cute little bell on the side of the wallet is also by Wild Orchid Crafts but I got this one from my fellow DT member at the club of Tiets, Joyce (nogmaals bedankt Joyce!!!). Then there is some bandage underneath the paper and the snowflakes is the waste from the edge I punched on the inside with my Martha Stewart Edge punch. A lot of Star Dust stickles everywhere and the edges of the paper and the inside of the nestabilitie were distressed with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The precious little fairy is called Elin with Star and she is a clear stamp by Nellie Snellen. She is colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced. Here is a close up:
Now on the inside I made pockets to add some yummie chocolate and some lovely vanilla coffee sachets. I figured with the warm and snuggly sentiment on the front of the project this was a nice step to get the receiver there.
Here's the inside with the filling separate. Ritter sport chocolate is so yummie but I truly don't get why they have sport in the name... maybe to help me convince myself that it isn't that bad if I eat it :).
That's it I guess!! If you want to join "us" at the Deep Ocean Challenge blog for this bi-weekly challenge go HERE and have fun!!

I'm also entering this project in the current challenge at Paper Sundaes, Sundae bar; use at least two of the toppings black, sparkle, flowers or distressing. My card has sparkle, flowers and distressing :).

Big hug!
