Paper Roses - Purple Box

Hello There Peeps

What a glorious sunny March day we have here in South Wales today.  I really hope your day is as beautiful and shiny as it is here.

Over at Hels Sheridan's blog her Sunday Stampers Challenge is Paper Roses.  So I was making this box up and suddenly remembered that fact.  So I am entering it in for the first time in absolutely ages and ages and ages (you get the gist)!

Hope you like...

The box started out as pine box which I stained using Distress Stains (Dusty Concord and Picket Fence). 

The sentiment is one of Tim Holtz's of course stamped onto card with DI Dusty Concord and embossed.  Card then inked up with DIs and cornered, then mounted onto box.  The flowers were cut using the TH Pine Cone die and two leaves which green cardstock was first mounted onto chipboard to give a bit of body.  Paper is College Press - Double Take.  Edges inked with DI Dusty Concord and then ribbon looped on to back of flower before adhereing leaves and flowers with glue gun (owch!).

A little lace cut from TH die and a little bit of TH  flower hardware on the opposite side and a liberal spraying of TH Perfect Pearls Mist and hey presto one box finished. 

Oops! Since I took the above photo I felt it needed something more so it has been added to......

Must fly... Cinderella has some work (chores - including mucking the chooks out)  to do before she can get to the Ball tonight!!!
