Sweet Candy Filled with Tenderness

Well I am back...just had some family matters to take care of so I'll be stopping by to visit everyone. Can't wait to see what you have created. Today's ATC expresses how I feel about you, dear followers, I am "filled with tenderness". I also know MaryLou has kept you  company while I was away, so you were in good hands. LOL. I will tell you how I created this ATC but first........

 I will announce the three winners of my 1st year Blogiversary  Candy, remember there is a Grand Prize and two Runner Up prizes, so I will be making three people happy today.
Random Generator came up with:
Cameron as the Grand Prize Winner
Dolly DayDreams as 1st runner up
Linda R. as 2nd runner up.
Dearies, please email me your addresses so I can send out your candy giveaway.

Well, back to the ATC. Using all products used today were from the amazing Flying Unicorn store. I started with Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper and watercolored it with orange paint. Then I layered crystal rhinestone swirls and black netting. The lovely vintage image came next by Graphic 45. The Petaloo flower was dabbed with orange paint, then hand stitched  with a sticker and crystal accent added to the center. Some hand drawn stitching was added too.The sentiment reads "filled with tenderness."

Hope you are filled with tenderness toward someone this week.
artfully yours, gerri
