HSS Challenge #103- and BLOG CANDY WINNER!!

Good Morning Stampers!! I am here to share with you the HSS Anything BUT a Card Challenge– it’s all about the gifts this week.  I love making gift items second to making cards.  I think making something with your own hands shows the recipient that you REALLY care for them. So lets see what I have for this week…

I went with an adorable frame, and better yet this would be a great frame to house a cute pic of me and my hubby together. I think that my kids should see a pic of their parents being affectionate ALL THE TIME!! 😉
I LOVED making this flower for the finishing touch of the frame.  I learned this technique from my friend Krista Jensen.  I used the new Flower punch from the Occasions Mini and also used the 5 petal flower. 
I also put glitter all on the inside of the frame opening and along the seam of the DSP meeting.  I LOVE ME SOME GLITTER!!!!
I finished off the edges of the flower with, yep- you guessed it, GLITTER!!! And my little leaves are also RED- I think the striped grosgrain against the polka dot pattern on the frame.
I love this chunky stuff and the light hits it soooooooo nicely!
I even added a nice glitter center to the flower too~
I hope you enjoyed today~ OH and I almost forgot… I have a BLOG CANDY WINNER to announce.  So are you ready… DRUM ROLL….
