GingerLoft Challenges-Celebration!

GingerLoft Challenges is getting ready to start their next challenge.  The theme for this one is 'Celebrations'.  Now, you don't have to use a GL image, but......Tami has a bunch of beautiful ones posted on her website.  Many of them are freebies to "try before you buy".  There is a little bit of something for everyone as the digi images are of a broad scope.  Some are fairly simple (fun to color!) and others are amazingly detailed.  Check them out in the store
On to the 'Celebration'!
As you can see, I am celebrating Valentine's day.  I don't often vary from cards or scrapbook pages.  The instructions for this paper cup on the Scor-Pal website just made it look so easy!  (They actually have pages of directions for many boxes, bags, envelopes, etc.)
This image so reminded me of my friend Marsha and her husband.  This is truely how I see them.  Probably helped that they came to our halloween party as a 20's flapper and her guy!  After making this, I promptly gave it to Marsha for her to give Steven at Valentines.
The image was printed twice, the heads were cut out on one and placed over the intact image using pop dots.  The edge of both layers was embossed and dots of glittter to the black background as stars.  A heart tag and some ribbons and the cup was complete.  I added a celophane bag of macadamia nut hershey kisses in the cup completed the project.
Ingredients:
Image:  GingerLoft designs:  The Kiss
Embossing:  Zing brand, Red Glitter Finish
Glitter:  SU Dazzling Diamonds
Ribbon:  Michaels
DP:  DCWV, The Luxury Stack

Love the cup, Gale...it turned out awesome! It's kind of fun to shake it up once in a while and try something you haven't done before. I bet your friend's hubby will love it!
