At Anything but a Card this time you have to use some black on your project. Always great to see what the team has made there and this challenge is no exception.
A while ago a friend sent me lots of flower shapes-some were cut from black card and the smaller ones cut from black tissue paper. I used a few on cards but they really needed boxes for the cards and I am not very good at making boxes.
So here is what I did. I found a box of gold candles that we had never opened and I stuck one of them in a piece of wood that was in a big box of potpourri-the gold leaves are from there as well. I cut the end off a branch of an old Christmas tree and added some small baubles. The cones I have collected from under a tree in town as I just love them. Then I added gold pen to the ends of the flower petals and made up a couple of flowers using a gold brad in the centre.
The hardest part was assembling everything using the glue gun. It would have been suitable for a Halloween Challenge with all the glue whisps I left hanging-very spider's webbish. So half an hour later I had picked them all off with tweezers and this is the finished project.
