A Girl's Favorite Things!

My Dear Friend is a Valentine's baby (actually the day after but who's counting) and I wanted to surprise her with a gift card bouquet. After brainstorming on how to do this, I came up with the flower pot with the scallop edge (can't remember which cartridge it came from) and the flowers from Accent Essentials. I glued styrofoam in the box and and added shredded black and brown paper to look like the dirt. From there I assembled several sizes of the flowers to a wood stick and curled the edges in different directions. I inked the edges and sprayed them with my own concoction of glimmer mist.  Then I attached her two favorite splurges.....A wine gift card and a Cold Stone's ice cream gift card. I figured what girl wouldn't want flowers, wine and ice cream for her birthday.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and I would love to hear your comments.


  1. Your friend is going to LOVE this, Donna! A great way to give her something for Valentine's Day AND her birthday! And yes, these are a girl's best friend! LOL

  2. This is so gorgeous Donna..........I bet she totally loved it! And I need to take your advice and quit overthinking my projects!
