Be My Valentine - Friday Inspiration with Athina

Hello there!

It is Athina back with another Friday Inspiration.  Before we get any further, I want to wish all that celebrate a Happy Valentine's Day!  Grab a loved one or friend and give them an extra squeeze and let them know how important they are to you!  That is my inspiration for today.

Inside this little box are some chocolates that I plan to share with a friend.  The box was cut out from the Silhouette and the closure on the top is nesting hearts.  The papers around the box are by Echo Park - Love Story collection.  After I stuffed the box full of chocolates, I added some tulle to close the box.

Then I had some fun with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  It has been a while since I have played with them, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity.  I have used Spun Sugar, Weathered Wood, Aged Mahogany and Worn Lipstick.  I stamped in the background with Penny Black - Love Chapter images, but they are slightly hard to see in the picture.  After I was happy with the outcome of the background, I added the C. C. Designs - Be Happy Sentiment to the tag.  It is finished off with some Wild Orchid flowers, lace and dew drops.  By the way - have you seen all the fun new Wild Orchid Flowers Laura has added to the store?  They are absolutely beautiful!

Here is the finished product all together!

Supplies used:

I feel like I have babbled quite a bit today, but I was really happy with how this turned out and couldn't wait to share it with you!

Remember, this week we have our Paper Piecing Challenge going until Monday, come and join the fun!  Also be sure to stop by the store to see all the fun new items Laura has been adding. 

That is it for me!  I hope you have a fantastic Valentines Day and a great weekend!
