Magnolia-licious dt

I am finally posting something again, i know i seem to be quite absent, hope the dry spell on  my blog wont linger too long.  We have a fabulous new challenge on Magnolia-licious challenge blog and the theme this week is a nautical wedding picutre inspiration:
Sometimes i take things pretty literary and so after seeing the fabulous cake that Angela Wood my fellow teamy here on Magnolia-licious and on Tomic made i just had to give it a go.
I made all my boxes using the circle and pinking methos for the sides of the boxes and added a strip of ribbon on the undersides of each of the boxes so they could be easliy opened.  My thought was to add some gimicky lengerie to the boxes for the newly married couple.
Each of my boxes was embossed with various Cuttlebug embossing folders, i added some lace, flowers and pearls and then some tulle to cover the bottom of my images at the very top tier.
This Bridal couple is available from Magnolia-licious, item # 158, where Diana will give you amazing service and great discounts, colored with copics and given a good going over with some star dust stickles, my all time favourite stickles, i dont think i ever color an image and it doesnt get stickles.
Do head over to the challenge blog and check out all the inspiration the team have come up with.
Have a great week and i will see you back here soon
