Drab to FAB !!!!!

I altered this box for the Vintage Box swap on the CMB. It's for my sis, Diane. ENJOY it sweetie. I used a paper mache' box inked the edges in Chestnut roan chalk in. The add smooth black cardstock under the October Afternoon's Thrift shop designer paper. Love it...looks very antique-y!!!! I then add black cardstock to the lid..with an old postcard...inked the edges. I had some small printed Designer paper in a black/white added it for a pop of patterns. Add a large prinma in dk brown...a handmade flower..THANK YOU SKRAPPINDIVA...but add a pinecone glimmer mist to it to give it the worn/aged vibe. The cream crocheted flower is a vintage look too...I made it and added the pearl to the center. The black gemed trim is from Jo Ann's..and very vintage. THe flower of pearls was a button...added the black prima gems flourishes and the handmade stick pin. THe knob is from Tim Holts collection.  I love how it looks..and hope that Diane is just as pleased.
