Daisy in a Pink Dress

Hello.  Welcome.  Well, this is verging on a record for making NBUS into used schtuff!!  Had a few happy mail packages today.  One was from Country View Crafts and contained a diverse selection of exciting things.  The first one I grabbed was the Sizzix Pillow Box Die (NBUS).  I saw this and thought it was a good price, cos it includes a few extra dies as well, and I have been making a few of these to pack small gifts, but cutting and scoring by hand.  Love it!!   I think I might work through the scraps and turn scraps to pillow boxes! 

Tried to go vintage.  Not a strong point of mine!!  I started by cutting the box from kraft and stamping Rubber Dance Vintage Script stamp with Espresso distress.  Then I smeared Old Paper and Tea Dye distress on the box.  I added a piece of lace up each size and die cut Memory Box Heart from Prima patterned paper.  I added 3 metal daisies from Korthobby.no and put a brown half pearl in the center of each flower.  This is Daisy the giraffe from  Lost Coast Designs Misc. Anthropomorphs.  Well, I think Daisy is a very good mname for a giraffe!  I coloured her with very dilute distress inks.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
