CCL ARTFUL CREATION CONTEST: Valentine Tussie Mussie (Project #5)

For my 5th project entry, I decided to create a Valentine tussie mussie. I used the following items from Lucky's box of supplies:

White lace
Silver mesh
12 x 12 and 6 x 6 sheets of grey cardstock
Pearls and rhinestones
Silver metallic pleated trim
White satin pleated trim
"PARIS" bling
Black mesh bling
Crystal acrylic chandelier drop
Large deep red velvet rose

I started  by printing a black pattern on the grey card stock
using a large damask stamp. 
Next I formed the tussie mussie. 
I inserted layers of the white lace, silver mesh, and
some black lace I had on hand. 
I added the pretty deep red rose, a smaller off white 
paper rose, and a grey paper flower I created using
the smaller sheet of card stock and a flower punch. 

I created the stickpin with some beads I had on hand
and some of the "PARIS" bling Lucky included
in the kit. Behind it is a small white feather spray
I found in Hobby Lobby's wedding section.
the Eiffel Tower in the back was cut from some 
Paris themed wrapping paper I hand. 

For the cone, I die cut a doily and heart using my
dies from Cottage Cutz. 
I adhered three rhinestones to the heart for 
added bling and hung the acrylic chandelier
drop to the bottom. 
The red, white, and grey paper roses are from my stash. 
Behind them is another white feather spray 
from Hobby Lobby.

I used the black bling as a dangle and also 
wrapped it around the bottom of the cone. 
Below that, I wrapped the silver and white pleated trims. 
Lastly, I cut the silver mesh into strips and attached
it to the bottom of the cone. 

This was way off my usual style. I'm not a big fan of the Paris theme but I like how this turned out.
