Magnolia-licious Highlites Project

OK Don't laugh, I do not know what it is but I am using it for a Valentines Decoration.
I started this as a box for a treat, then I messed up and the paper was upside down so I thought well I will just build up on it and see what happens.  I just kept adding things, trying out different skills.
I am still laughing at myself!

It has a octagon base and Tilda is upright with a accordion fan behind her.  Then I surrounded her with flowers in the front for more stability.  3 side are decorated and lace trims the bottom and top.

Here is a close up of another challenge that I chose to do, color her black and white.  This is harder than it looks as I do not have a complete set of Copics in the C tones.  I am pleased with how she turned out.

Here are flowers at her feet, every women should have flowers at our feet!  I used my LAST clear heart CAMI and used the edge to enhance the flower tops and the full clear heart lays on Tilda's right side standing up.  There is a red heart pin that I tied whimsy string onto.

Here is a better photo of the clear heart, pin and accordion trimmed in black lace.

On the middle side I tucked in a magnolia do-hickey tag into a half doily die.  I stamped a mini Tilda and tried to color her with Copics, same colors of black and white but I really struggle with the Mini, they are hard to get the details without overdoing it. Then I have charms on the ribbon of the tag.  Below is a accordion flower and clear rose for the middle.

A view of the right side with a red heart doily and "Be My Valentine" sentiment from Paper Trey Ink with a chipboard tag and a heart of words that I cut out from the DP.

Left side view of White doily with a cut out word heart and a small accordion tag.  You can really see the clear heart shapes lay on the flowers in this angle.

A closer look at the outline of the plastic heart on top of the flowers

Just thought I would see what it looked like against my shelf.

So many details but it was fun to create this box top, I am not sure what to call it, (Valentine Decoration)?

I want to enter this creation project into the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Sweet Crazy Love blog hop.  There are absolutely GORGEOUS cards from the DT on this blog hop.
