This month the image provided at Mind Wide Open for their challenge is soooo beautiful.   I had just happened to be perusing (for the fourth or fifth time) the latest issue of Somerset Life, which features some beautiful “Victorian Cones,” so it was an easy decision what to make this time.

Eventually this will hang on the wall; I only just had time to get it photographed for the challenge and will add a hanger to it tomorrow. (Glad I finally have a way to display those leftover silk roses from another project!)  I rolled a sheet of 12″ textured black cardstock into a cone, secured it with Fabri-Tac (that glue holds everything!), then added sheet music, paper lace, velvet and paper flowers and pom-pom fringe.  This was so much fun I might just have to make a few more!
