Candy Wrapper

I wanted to slip in another candy wrapper at Joan's Gardens that is a little more feminine.  I used an image from Abby at Little Birdie Blessings, added a spot for the word art from Word Art Wednesday, and then distressed the edges and used Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  

 I made a rolled rose but I'm not very good at those yet.  I also added a stamped heart with some more crackle paint around the edges.  I also layered a MS punch with a fleur de lis die.  I thought the entire project looked very dull until I added that little bit of black lace.  Always amazes me how a little bit of black will make everything pop.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
