Something I made for a friend :) December IARCC

I'm joining the I am roses contest for desember with my latest project :) The theme is Blue and White and I just wanted to share an altered box, a toilet paper roll mini album and a card that I made for a friend of mine. I used heaps of the wonderful flowers from I am Roses to decorate my projects:) I'm also entering the Sukkersøtt challenge 'snowflakes and glitter'. I used snowflakes throughout my album and there is a lot of glitter on my card, box and in my album :)
Hope you like it :)

And here's the card I created :) I'm not showing the right hand inside page, cause I've written a personal note to my friend on that page but here are the three other pages :) it's a 6x6 inch card.
 I started with some white swirl embossed cardstock that I cut and distressed with Broken china distress inks and went over it with stickles on the embossed swirls around the edges. I then used some cardstock that I painted and stenciled as my background paper. I tore a piece from a sheet of pink paislee paper and glued behind the top part of my background paper. I painted some japanese mulberry paper in white pearl, glued it down, glued down a part of a white crocheted doilie.

Cut some white cardstock and distressed it using the same distress ink and glued down some sheer embossed and glittered paper. glued down the ribbon and attached it to the background paper using pop dots. Stamped the white heart and 'for you' on a piece of pink paislee paper, tore it out, distressed the edges and where you can see black is where I edged the paper with a black paint dabber. I tied a bow which i glued to the bottom of the heart.

The angel is a free download I had on my computer. I fuzzy cut it and glued it to the heart. and attached it to the paper using pop dots. I decorated the front page of my card using I am roses gardenia and flowers coloured with lindy's glimmer sprays and distress inks to match. I also used som crocheted flowers from I am roses, a glass flatback bead and some flowers cut from a pearl flower trim.
 This is just layers of paper a punched border using my martha stewart punch and a punched scalloped circle and a punched and stamped circle saying 'I thought you might need a big hug'
Here you can see how I went over the embossed swirls with stickles.

Thanks for watching
Have a wonderful rest of weekend!!
