Now on to what I created…

I've been saving this gift box to be altered at a future date and now the time has come. The box itself stayed the same and I altered the lid. The paper collection I used is K & Company Celeste. The vellum die cuts that I layered are from K & Company Flora and Fauna. This was my last white dollar frame from Michael's and it fit perfectly. I distressed the frame with Rubb n Buff Gold Leaf. I was hoarding some of this fab pearl/rosette trim and I wrapped it around the lid. Then I added some bronze pearl trim as an extra detail.
Now for the yummy part. All the flowers here are of course from I Am Roses. I love the small white & purple flowers, they are such great fillers. That beautiful soft purple rose in the center is measured at 2". I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz in Desert Moon Cactus Gold for that awesome shimmer. I then anchored it on each side with these 1" white roses. I also used small skeleton leaves in the back that are so delicate looking. All the links to these flowers will be provided at the end of this post. So that is my IAR project. I hope you guys enjoyed it =)

Next up is the awesome Karla! I’m sure she has something FABULOUS to share with you!
