Make It Crafty's Anything But A Card

Ooooooh I'm so late folks but I hope my first eeeeeeever attempt at a 3D project makes up for it!  It's time for another super fun challenge at Make It Crafty.  Our super talented and innovative leader Zoe is our Hostess and she's challenging you to Anything But a Card.   AND for eye-popping inspiration, be sure to checkout the talented DTs outstanding creations.


I was so nervous about making a 3D project because this is 100% outside my comfort zone but what is a challenge if not that.  The Wishing Well template was soley developed and created by our Zoe Extraordinaire ~ a genius ~ at Make It Crafty.  The kit comes complete with easy to follow step-by-step written and photo instructions PLUS it is so easy to assemble and this is coming straight from me a NEWBIE at 3D.  All you need is a cutting blade, glue and whatever embellies you want.  AND the hardest part was waiting for the glue to dry!  The kit comes flat with ALL the pieces cut out and marked.  Oooooh and once assembled, you can turn the handle and the bucket will lift up or down.

I paired up the well with Fairydust Tilda, available at Magnolia-licious, and used lots of goodies to embellish.  Prima flowers and the lavender pearls are from my stash.  The lace ribbon, pinky/violet ruffle, string of pearls wrapped around the front posts, and the lacey/gauzey trim on the roof were all bought at my local Fabric store at bargain prices too.  So what are you waiting for?  

I'm entering the following challenges:
You have 2 weeks to finish and submit a project PLUS be in the running for 1 of 3 Wishing Well Kits.  Yup, there are going to be 3 WINNERS for this challenge and the Wishing Well will make a wonderful Christmas present ~ woohoo!

Hugs,
Maria
