Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT meets Red and Gold

Good morning to you all and hope your weekend has started as well as mine.
The reason mine started so well is - it has been confirmed that I am going to get to meet the owner of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge in person, the lovely Wendy. I am going to be part of the team carrying out demonstrations for the Secret Crafter Shop at the Open Day advertised at the top of my blog.  I would love to meet you, so if you are in the area or not..... and like to travel, please come and join us for what promises to be a very special day. Cannot wait to meet you too:)

Wow there were some stunning entries in last weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and I really enjoyed hopping around with my lovely team mates to see all your wonderful creations.

This week's challenge is set by the very talented Bridget with the theme of

Red and Gold

I loved this theme and created this for my Design Team Piece and think I got carried away with the camera, David Bailey eat your heart out!!
I created a little gift bos and a card to match, using some gorgeous Bo Bunny St Nick's papers I believe.
I started with a base white card and layered this with some gold pearlized paper, adding the Bo Bunny papers on top of this.   I used my MS snowflake punch to the base layer of the image and wrapped a deep red ribbon around the back and tied it at the front to create a lovely bow. I added holly in gold either side of the bow.  I used the Marianne Creatables Poinsettia 2 available in the Secret Crafter Shop here.  I added a little red pearl from stash and some gold coloured diamante's to finish the creation.

The image is a Magnolia, not sure of the name sorry and my good friend Polly allowed me to purchase some of her huge stock, thank you hun. x and Sam I used some fluffy polar white flower soft for her fluffy bits.
Here is a close up of the Poinsettia 2 marianne creatable, just look at the lovely embossed finish it gives just fabulous on mirror card.

The little cake or sweet box I have added an array of flowers from my stash with a couple of the punched holly leaves and a ribbon to match the main card. Unable to fill with the chocolates, as the chocolates did not make it to the box. :(

Please pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and take a look and see what my amazing teamies have created too and then have a go and enter too, would love to see you there :)

I am entering this creation into the following challenges
Sir Stampalot - Xmas Traditions
Wild Orchid - Classic Xmas
Allsorts - Gold, Cream and Red (might be too much red)
Caardvarks - Holiday Cards with Die Cuts
Bah Humbug - Fancy Folds (on the box)
One Stop Craft - Embossing on the holly leaves and the poinsettia

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes

I would like to thank all my wonderful visitors for the lovely comments you leave, I love each and every one of them.

Have a great crafting weekend
