~* Shabby Chic Altered Wood Box using Prima Divine Collection *~

Sharing a wood box that I altered using the Prima Divine Collection!  I love the colors :).  I first painted the wood box with gesso and then adhered the designer papers on to the box.  I used my "Art Is" stencil along with modeling paste to add texture.  I added a crochet doilie and layered on tons of Wild Orchid Crafts trellis and open roses.  I also added some fabric flowers and pearls.  There are some white fabric leaves that I added Stickles to to make the all glittery.  I also added acrylic paint, Stickles, and modeling paste to the flowers.  I used a bunch of yummy trims.  I used the beautiful crochet lace with gold accents.  I tied a bow with it and added a pearl cabochon from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also used the delicate white lace around the box and then layered on this satin trim that had they pretty fabric flowers on it.  I also added some Recollections bling that Nat had gifted to me.
I also added designer paper on the inside of the box and the bottom of the box.  I added some images from the collection as well as a K and Company dimensional sticker and some Guipire lace and pink rosette trim.  On the bottom of the box, I added large pink halfback pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts as the feet.
I would like to enter this project into the following:

~* "with love" Shabby Chic Card using my fave gorjuss girl :) *~

Happy mid-February!  Boy this year is just flying on by!  I have a card that I wanted to share with you today.  I used my fave gorjuss girl stamp and colored her up with my Copic markers.  She's from the set called "You Brought Me Love."  I also used one of my favorite paper collections from docrafts Papermania called Vintage Notes.  I paperpieced her dress. stamped the heart image onto one of the papers, and also cut pieces from the collection to embellish my card, including the ticket sentiment, the little doilies, the hearts, and the "with love" sentiment.  I used some pretty pink chiffon trim with pearls from One Little Dreamer.  I also used some Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts roses.  The bow is made with my favorite crochet trim and I added a Wild Orchid Crafts rose cabochon to it.  There are bits and pieces of my fave Prima Alencon lace and some heart halfback pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also added a crochet doilie and a heart bauble.  
I finished the inside off with some more designer paper from the collection.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
