Authentique Paper and Petaloo are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Petaloo products!

There's something special in the air these days. Some of you say "snow?", some of you say "hail?" I say "LOVE".
As in Authentique's "Lovely". And to celebrate the loveliness, I created a tiny canvas of paper, some wonderful flowers from Petaloo and trims from May Arts.


The canvas is 5x7", and I "painted" it with Victorial Velvet Distress Ink. I rubbed the ink on the canvas's edges, then used a paper towel to smear and fill in the canvas with color.


After I stamped and fancy-cut the wings, legs and top, I created the tutu with layers of ribbon, book pages, and Petaloo's Darjeeling Flowers. More ribbon wraps the canvas and holds the key.


 I also love love love the tiny hat pins from Petaloo. Adorably small, and perfectly pink, I used a beaded and a silver pin in the top corner.


Materials Used
"Lovely" by Authentique
"Darjeeling Flowers" by Petaloo
Ribbons by May Arts
Distress Ink by Ranger

Today I wanted to share a cute card for that special man in
your life!!  Using Authentique's Lovely valentines inspired collection.


 Using some of the patterned papers for my base card then adding this
wonderful  card with sentiment , distressing the edges. 
I wanted a big red bow and this ribbon from May Arts is perfect! 
For the last feature I added these small flowers to the middle 
of the red bow.. All of these elements make up a fun card that I will
give my hubby this year!!
