My GSS submission

I finally found some time to enter PTI's GSS contest this month. I have no idea who won, the winners still arent posted. I am really pleased with my entry this time around. I love how this turned out... the pics don't do it justice.I used Lauren's Timeless Templates.  I traced it out onto PTI's vellum.  I made all the score marks and cuts and then I stamped it with the flourish from With Sympathy in ripe avocado.  I added flowers in berry sorbet and some crystal stickers too.  
See how pretty it looks as a votive holder?  Of course you shouldnt be putting flames in here!  Battery operated only!
I modified the template to make that little lid in spring moss.  That was the most challenging part.  Getting the lid just big enough, but not too big.   I tied on some pretty berry sorbet ribbon.  I love how it turned out.  Its kicking around my craft table right now but I think I really need to give it to someone.

Its just Beautiful! I finally tried one of Lauren's templates (don't ask what took me so long....I don't have a good answer!! :>). I love the sympathy flourish with those little flowers. Great color choices! I haven't looked to see who won this month yet, but good luck!
