Gallery Idol- Final Round!

(for the MTE release, scroll down or click here)
Thank you so much for those of you who have stuck with me the past few weeks....this has been an incredible journey! For the final round of Gallery Idol (the one that determines the overall winner!), the theme is "Party Trios."

I decided to reference the card I made that got me into the top 20 (see it here) - mostly white, with a bold rainbow of color.

I chose to make a fun cake topper, pinwheel placecards, and a gift box.
Below is a closer view of the banner cake topper. I stamped and embossed each flag, then tied them onto thick lollipop sticks that I got in the cake decorating section at the craft store.

(By the way, the cake is funfetti-to continue the white/rainbow theme, and I covered it in homemade marshmallow fondant...yummy!)

Here are the pinwheel placecards. I found a template here, cut out the pieces, and embossed them with my swiss dots folder. I printed out the names of each of my guests Cristina, Meg, Jaclyn, and Aimes, and added a rhinestone to each. (I figured that we are all in this competition together, we might as well party together too!)

I used the same lollipop sticks as before, and spiraled embroidery floss down the length of each one:

For the gift box, I started with a plain white box, added a white doily, then wrapped the whole thing with embroidery floss. The sentiment was stamped on a white piece of cardstock, matted with black, then I put on a few rhinestones and adhered it to the box with foam tape.
On the top, I tied each one in a messy bow and left the ends free:
I hope you consider voting for my project, but definitely check out the other entries too.
