Decorative Box with Heartfelt Creations

I have been having way too much fun playing with the new "Vintage Floret" collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I absolutely love the colors and vintage feel of this collections.  My project today is this book box I decorated and embellished using the papers and flowers from "Vintage Floret"
Here is a closeup of the sentiment, I hand cut the image into an oval shape making sure to cut around the roses and leaves.
I had some fun creating this roses, lots of shading, shaping and sparkle.
For the spine, I adhere pieces of trim and pearls to cover the 4 ribs on the spine.
I covered the inside with coordinating paper and cardstock.  All it needs is a special little gift.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, hope to see you back soon.
