Decorate to Celebrate #75 - Teachers or Birthday

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for another challenge at Decorate to Celebrate. Our theme this week is "Teachers". We want to see your decorations celebrating teachers...or you could link up a birthday project as well :)


For my project, I created a Thank You candle gift for a teacher. The strip of butterflies is a Die-Versions Butterfly Punch Border die. The edges are Die-Versions Loopy Lace dies, adorned with crystal gems. Thank You is from Die-Versions Everyday Compliments set. I cut it once in green paper and then several times in black for dimension. I added a couple of the punched butterflies to decorate the letters.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - May Linky
  2. Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky
Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Decorate to Celebrate to see the amazing projects my talented design team sisters have created for today's challenge. Then link up your Teacher or Birthday project...I can't wait to see what you create :)

I will be out of town from today through the weekend, so I probably won't be able to stop by your blogs for a few days. I will catch up as soon as I get back. I have a couple of posts scheduled later this week...my DT post for Die-Versions and a guest designer spot at Scrapping4fun Challenges so I hope you will stop back by. Have a great week :)

What an awesome idea! I love your candle! The die cuts are beautiful - really like how you offset the thank-you to create a shadow effect. Love all the bling too! Hope you have a nice trip out of town, Lisa! Have fun!

This is a great looking project. People are always looking for little gifts this time of year for their teachers. I like how your thank you has dimension! Have a good couple of days out of town.

This is really beautiful! I like the Die-Versions Loopy Lace dies and how magnificent the diecut border looks when decorated with gemstone which added stunning sparkle to it! Cutting few layers of black card stock for added dimensions to the die-cut 'thank you' sentiment is really such a brilliant technique and idea I've never thought of!!!
