Be Mine Set for Magnolia-licious Frame Challenge

WooHoo...I finaly was able to get this finished for the challenge over at Magnolia-licious. The challenge was to use a frame on your card. I made the frame using my Cricut machine and welded the hearts at the top and bottom together. This card ended up being much bigger than I had planned but I really do love the outcome of it.
I don't know the names of the Magnolia stamps. They dont have a name on the packages. But I loved how I have Edwin looking at Tilda and Tilda is looking forward (to me with a smilin blushing grin on her face)...lol...I put this scene behind a transparency and added a bunch of feathers, wire beads and a bouquet of hearts to the sides of the card. Then I used the tutorial that Becca (Amazing Paper Grace) shared with everyone for the box. Have you seen this box? OMGosh!! If you haven't you really need to check it out. It's just awesom. I did however make mine shorter than what she did, and I really overworked the cardstock for the box. The next one I will know what to do and I won't have to try and refold it so many times...Enjoy!!!!
Isn't this just the cutest and creative little box evah? LOL...Thank you Becca for your instructions..
the front of the card....do you see the little "love" potion bottle...
and here's the little box...I tried to use the same materials as I did for the card....
Here's what I used from my Cricut machine... Sweethearts cart
tree--4 1/2"
frilly hearts--2"
hearts--2"
Mickey&Friends
fence--3"
Storybook
frame--8 1/2"
Plantin Schoolbook
flower border--2"
Well that's it for today...I didn't have to go to Jury Duty...woohoo...I hope everyone has a wonderful day...Hugs from Charm City

Good grief lady!! Do you do anything that's not perfect?!! LOL!! I LOVE how the hearts are used like flowers. So cool!!You don't have an email that I could respond to when you leave comments on my blog so I thought I would let you know that sentiment I used for the Mojo Monday was a stamp from Inkadinkado. I have no idea where or when I got it. Isn't it funny?!
