A TOUCH OF "SWEET PEA" ELEGANCE

HI EVERYONE,
I have spent this afternoon making a list of things to make for the special people in my life. And I went one step further and created, what I think is really special...
But I will let you be the judge....
 This is the little pouch I made for my special gift....
I wrote this simple little poem to go with it.....
And here is my beautiful sweet pea nestled in a metal framed pendant.....
Here is a closer view

and she is multi functional....
It can be used to put on your bedside table or mantle piece
or  a Fridge Magnet
or as an ornament on the Christmas tree
or whatever takes your fancy...
But I plan to give it to someone who loves Sweet Pea's as much as I do...
who knows it could be you :)
These special challenges, I have selected my Sweet Pea to go to are:
BIZZY BECS - christmas ( christmas gift)
SOUTHERN GIRLS CHALLENGE - heat it up (glue gun for flowers)
SWEET PEA CHALLENGE - monochromatic
CREATIVE CARD CREW - not another card ( pouch for gift)
SCRAP CREATIONS - anything goes
CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS - christmas ornament
FLUTTERBY WEDNESDAY - open challenge with wings
LILI OF THE VALLEY - a few of my fav things (sweet peas, flowers and ink dyes)
STAMP INSANITY - lace (lace metal pendant?)
DARING CARD MAKERS - turquoise
FROSTED DESIGNS - glitter/blog hop
FUSSY AND FANCY - anything but a card
NO TIME TO STAMP - christmas ornament or home deco (both)
STAMP CHALLENGE - christmas color combo (turquoise and purple)
TIPTOP TUESDAY - anything goes
REASONABLE RIBBON - anything but a card
A CRAFTY LITTLE PLACE - anything goes
I can't believe I have entered into so many challenges but I just can't resist!!
Have a wonderful night and I will see you later
Huggs

Hey There Lynn, still miss that challenge blog :-( Please consider running it again. Anyway, just want to say that I was surprised with the lovely, vibrant colors in the butterfly on this one and the soft, subtle colors in the flowers. Quite different and yet they seem to be working well together on this card! Nice Job! Thanks for sharing.
Hey hope you've been checking out my posts about men's cards! If you haven't, you've missed about 3 or 4 posts so far. I made almost 500 cards for men over the past two months or so. My plan was to use "forgotten" supplies like stickers and make them easily mailable. Come check it out!
