Wedding Post Box

Hello evryone - well it's a wet and miserable day here, really quite depressing. I hope the weather bucks up soon and that we do get some decent weather this year - it would be nice to have a Summer LOL. 
Anyway I promised pics of the wedding post box that I made.  I've never made one before and all I really had was the colour theme of the wedding, they left the rest up to me.  I was really worried as to wheterh they would liek the finished piece but thankfully she was really pleased with it!  I think all I did for 2 weeks was make flowers LOL.  So here are some pictures;

The colour theme was champagne and purple, so I made the box and then all 250 flowers !  I then tied up a big bow with wired ribbon to finish it off.  I was quite pleased with it and I now have an order for another one so have lots more flowers to make ;o)
Hope you like it

Craft US Crazy challenge

Hello everyone - where the heck has April gone ?  LOL!  I have spent the last three weeks making paper flowers for a commission for a wedding post box, hence my absence - that plus we have been decorating the living room and we have had a small summer house/craft space in the garden ;o)  I'll post pictures of the post box and the summer house later ;o)  Anyway onto the Craft US Crazy challenge.  This is the last challenge for a little while, while Jeri, the fab lady who does all the organising, moves house!  We wish her luck with that and also that all things go well and with as little stress as possible ;o)  The challenge will return on the 5th July so I look forward to that!
But for now our last challenge is;

Well this was a tough one LOL there are so many favourites to choose from.  Anyway this is what I have come up with ;

I have used two stamps from Clarity stamp available here.  I heat embossed the larger stamp with gold embossing powder and then with the corset I used fusible fibres and then some black thread to lace it up.  The pink cardstock is vintage core'dinations and I have used a couture creations embosasing folder and then sanded it back.  The sentiment is from Creative Expressions.  My inspiration is from the design team at Creative Expressions but especially Sue Wilson whose blog is amazing and always full of inspiration for me - she uses Spellbinders all the time but I just love her style ;o)  I used pink and black as I just love this combination.  I finished the card with some black satin cruch ribbon and a couple of hat pins.

I hope you like my card ;o)

I'll be back soon with pictures of the wedding box and my new crafth space
