Wild Card Wednesday @ Club Anya & Friends

Hi again! 

Not only was I hosting at ISS (see post below) .. but today was my FIRST official post over on the Club Anya & Friends as guest designer!! 

I am so excited to be on this team- they have the cutest images, and they are SO fun to color!!  For my challenge I decided to stick with Valentine's theme and make the challenge to create a treat holder.
I had these plastic candy holders for quite sometime and have just been waiting for the perfect project to use them with.. and this was it!  I colored Stella with my Copics (of course) and used some American Crafts patterned paper and came up with this:
WCW Stella

- Stella (The Greeting Farm), Valentine messages (Hero Arts)
- American Crafts Romance, True Love patterned paper
- Sweet Hearts border punch (Martha Stewart)
- Labels 4 nestabilities
- Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Colorbox chalk dark peony, white gel pen, 
- Copics: (E000, E00, E02, C3, C5, C7, 110, R46, R59, R81, R83, R85, Y21, Y26, 0), spica clear pen
- Other: buttons, string, ribbon

I was also inspired to try to make the paper flowers that Dawn McVey has made so popular recently.  I used the smallest scalloped circle nestie and I don't think it turned out quite right.. think the punch has bigger scallops and would look better?

Hope you check out the challenge at the Club Anya & Friends blog- and as ALWAYS thanks for stopping by!
