BittenByTheBug chandelier

a view to see how the chandelier is only adhered in the center

happy monday!!!
this week over at BBTB the fabulous regina had us use the chandelier cut from the home decor cartridge. be sure to go check out the other creations by the awesome DT ladies.. they ALL do such amazing work!
i made this altered candle for my daughter with it.
i added some rhinestones and frosted lace stickles to the cut.
i only adhered it in the center  so the sides would stand out .
i added a pretty butterfly using my cuttlebug  and a cut and emboss die. i also included some ribbon that my daughter bought me .
the beautiful paper is memory box brand.
i also added some colorbox fluid chalk for some distressing/shading and basic grey opaline pearls.
 for the little card i used a flourish stamp on along with some computer generated text.

 i also have to mention my new toy! i  used my brand new purple cows trimmer.. how ive survived without this baby i'll never know!!!!!!  it comes with 11 different cutting blades.. has a bar that holds down your paper woo hoo!!!!! and  cuts thru my cardstock ( several layers)  like butter AND does not tear my regular paper like my other  cutter!  this is just one marvelous product!! so... hope youve enjoyed looking at my little project  i really like making these it looks like youve taken forever but they only take minutes and turn out soooo lovely! great gifts!  have a super fine day and thank you so much for sittin a spell with me :) shelly
