Pretty Playthings


I love pretty bottles and the scents that come out of those lovely spray bottles. The thick, cut glass that light sparkles off of, the satiny tassel on the send and the different shaped stoppers that you pull out with that hint of fragrance on it just makes me weak in the knees! I've always been a perfume junkie since I used to buy Youth Dew by Estee Lauder for my Aunt Betty for Christmas. Yep, I started out at the top of the line and my first perfume I picked up for myself wasn't the fragrances from the drug store, I had to get the best - Chanel No. 5! Loved it and still do. There's something about that classy, square glass bottle! And Victoria's Secret Very Sexy for Her. Oh, that's my signature scent now!

Our Design Team Leader, Suzanne, tasked us with highlighting some of the gorgeous design paper that Susana has in the store and restricted us to using only two embellishments. Do you know how hard that was for me? I wanted to use some of the new charms, petals, velvet flock. I could go on but I knept it simple and classy. I ran with the Glamour Prints pack from Dovecraft. I love this paper pack and Susana's is the only place in the US that you can purchase it. I love the hearts on it. Kind of ties these beautiful, classy bottles in with Valentines Day. These beautiful perfume bottles are designed by our very own Susana! Aren't they great? She has such wonderful bottles and shoes! Everything for this card you can pick up in Susana's great store!

I love the paper flowers by Bazzill and the Oyster Bella Baubles are nothing if not classy! It feels like a card just wouldn't be complete without a touch of Shimmerz! Oh, how I love the good things! Hope you do as well.

Make sure that you stop by Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, and check out the great work of all the other talented Design Team members and see what great things Susana has in the store! Stop by their blogs to find out all the details. Here they are:
