Triple Tiara Tuesday Challenge

Today it's my turn to host the Queen Kat Designs 'Triple Tiara Tuesday Challenge' along with my fellow DT members Sarah and Loretta.  If you enter the challenge every week each month, you increase your chances of winning the $25 prize to spend in the QKD Store. Full details are on the QKD Blog, just add a link to your project with the linky tool over there once you've completed it, simple as that !  Do check out the fabulous projects that Sarah and Loretta have created to inspire you this week, links to their blogs are also on the QKD blog.

The picture inspiration for this week's challenge is this pretty painted planter on the right here. 

For my project I took the colours and a floral theme from the inspirational picture and decided to use the lovely Pisces image to create a tealight holder card.  I've seen a few of these pretty tealight holder cards as I've been hopping around blogland,

They are a great
gift idea so I thought I'd have a go at making one myself. I based my design on the tutorial here but actually used only the basic measurements from the tutorial to develop my own tealight holder card design.

I do love this Pisces stamp which was newly released for February by QKD. The image was coloured with Copics before cutting out. The patterned base card was from my stash and I used a Marianne Designs die to cut out the leafy swirl.

The layers under Pisces were cut using a set of Labels 4 nestabilities from SU! Early Espresso and Peach Parfait cardstock and the butterflies punched with a Nellie Snellen Punch and Emboss set from cream. I created a closure 'button' from a punched flower and a brad to hold the card closed and tied a ribbon round to hold the tealights safely inside the box. 

I do hope you'll enter our challenge this week, I'll hop over to check out your creations after you enter your link on the QKD Blog, I can't wait to see how this week's picture inspires you - good luck !
