Paris in Spring



Another swap gift in the Marie Antoinette
group, this square tussie mussie
was created using heavy art board.

I painted the art board, then covered it with lace.


The top is filled with flowers, eggs,
lace, and white velvet strawberries.


I added some sparkle by including
a piece of jewelry, a chandelier crystal,
and an Eiffel Tower die cut
that has been covered with gold Stickles.



This tussie mussie was created for
my partner Melanie.

Such a gorgeous Tussie........and look at that silk ribbon!!! Breath taking. You could not have designed a more 'spot-on' Melanie Tussie if she had been there putting it together with you. Stunning work.
