Crafty Angels - Circles & Squares

Good morning!! I made this gift box as a thank you gift for someone (who hasn't got it yet so no names mentioned, lol) It is also a DT project for Crafty Angels

I painted the box with acrylic paint and then convered it with My Mind's Eye Bella Bella papers, inking the edges with Brushed Cordoroy first.

Then I made a criss cross card the same size as the box using brown card and the Bella Bella. Tilda has been coloured using Copic markers. I then cut my image out using nestabilities and added lace trim around it. 

My flowers have also been inked with Brushed Cordoroy, but not stickles ...eek!!! To finish the card I added some tulle, pearls, pins and heart charm. I then adhered the card to the top of the box.

The insert was made from brown card and some white card. I inked all around the edges and used a Tim Holtz flourish stamp. The sentiment is from the Stamp set I won on Simon Says Stamp. 

Other challenges:
Just Magnolia - Criss Cross Card
The Craft Barn - Shaped Card
Totally Tilda - Chocolate, use only creams and browns. 
Pile it On - My Favourite Things

What a fantastic idea!

I like the idea with the box and then surpise; a card also!

Very well elaborated with a lot of trendy details (the three pearls for example).
