Hello , Welcome back to my blog!! Today I have a romantic project to share with you all.
Well the month of july is the month of my husband's birthday.I wanted to make something special for this special person of my life as he loves my handmade gifts. Usually I will plan in advance but since we went to Florida for a vacation I was left with three days to make a gift. That was when I saw a cliche proposal scene on a commercial. The guy plays a guitar and sings a song praising that girl. Then he kneels down and proposes to her with a rose. Suddenly a thought struck me - How nice it would be if I propose to my husband in a similar way on his birthday. My brains got into work and finally I tried to create a proposal scene with my crafting skills. 

I don't have a guitar nor I don't know to play it. So made a mixed media violin shaped card using card stock

I don't grow roses at my home. So made a red foam sheet rose.

Instead of singing a song I wrote a poem for him and framed it using tree branches.

I arranged all the elements of proposal upon a  box ( altered laptop box)and covered it using a wood grain paper. For the backdrop I recycled packaging card boards and wood grain paper. Finally decorated using lace and t lights. 

Hope you liked my creation !! Come back soon for my upcoming post on the details of making violin shaped card.   I would love to hear your comments and suggestions!!
