Timeless Tuesday #131 and Sketchbook Saturday #24

I love Chupa's sketches!

They're so eye-catching...

I've just never organized myself well enough to play with one.

Well, if I want to get any crafting time in right now, I have to be organized!

So I combined Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday challenge with the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes (pink, lace/ribbon, buttons).


The late-evening lighting took its toll on my photograph...  ;)

It's difficult to tell, but I sprayed some Rose Tea Glimmer Mist on the white card base. I added the stitched and circle patterned papers (more Kaisercraft Miss Nelly) and sewed on some lace.

The stamped panel took a bit more work.  ;)

I stamped the giant gift box in Frayed Burlap ink 3 times: once on the stitched white rectangle and once on each of the patterned papers. Then I took my detail scissors and went to work paper piecing!!

I love the effect! It looks like a gorgeous vintage box!

I had the thing all photographed and ready to go until I remembered the buttons...

Thanks for stopping by!
