PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE BLOG: Challenge #170 - Now & Then

Today's challenge is to compare two different things. I chose to compare snowstorms five years apart. Snow is pretty rare in the Pacific Northwest, so it's kind of fun to look at the two very different snowstorms. 2014 was pretty tame, as it dumped between 12-14 inches at our house in the span of just a few days.
I used my Lindsey kit from Felicity Jane. I loved being able to use all of the great Valentine's style for a non-lovey project. I used a few Silhouette Online Store cut files (#104197-Felicity Jane, #220866-Paige Evans). The only thing that wasn't from the Lindsey kit from Felicity Jane was a single Thicker from YEARS ago

AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Happy Valentine's Day from the Design Team!

I turned a Target Dollar Spot ornament and pieces from the Romance Collection into a fabulous Valentine's wall hanging. You could easily use this as a larger ornament or home decor item. The twine is also detachable, so if you wanted a small stand, that would also work. 
The heart is hand cut from a piece of Romance Three. Before it was inked with Distress Oxide inks, I also used a Lawn Fawn Reverse Stitched Scallop Circle Window die in the place where the heart's "heart" would be. This was where I added the interest to this piece.
I layered die cuts from the Elements die cut sheet, as well as various flowers and Pretty Pink Posh Water Droplets. The last detail was to glue a piece of 3/8" Mini Pom Pom Ribbon in White by May Arts
 Supplies: Authentique Romance Collection and Die Cuts, Target Dollar Spot ornament, Dimensional Adhesive, ribbon (May Arts), water droplets (Pretty Pink Posh), flowers (Petaloo - retired), Oxide Ink (Distress - Ranger), dies (Lawn Fawn)
