Visible Image Feb challenge

Oh my Days!! (as my daughter would say)
Can you believe its Feb already, can only mean one thing a new month a new challenge at 
OK and who can guess the theme? its tough one being Feb and all lol
yeah its LOVE...
now i have a confession to make here, i was busy working on my piece having fun stamping and gluing and almost done i think oh Buggering hell ! i had completely forgot the theme lol, but the lovely Helen said well its a love of sewing!! saved :D
and here it is...

this is the top,

and a side view

the side view is a better colour, for some reason i cant get the top pic in the right light but you get the idea .

i used just a plain paper mache box, measuring 6 x 3 1/2 ''
first i covered it in some paper i printed from my craft studio using Deco Mache, then i went on to the stamping, using one of my fave sets The Sewing Room its such a wonderful feminine set and i always want to dress up the body form lol but i refrained this time and dressed up the box instead ....using tulle and lace and a beautiful ribbon rose trim,
 I have used the body form, buttons and 
thread bobbins plus the be Unique sentiment from the set but you still have so many stamps in the set to work with you could go on and on with them.

so what is it you Love? make a project  be it a card a tag or an altered piece and show us the love xx
