You Have the Key to my Heart!

Look closely, it's there somewhere!

 Hello to you all, today I'm back  with a box made for a very special Lady and I think something really pretty will be going inside, lucky girl. Wonder if I made one and put it under Hubby's nose he would maybe do the same! Probably say very nice and hand it back to me lol.
Okay, made my box using Linen effect off white card, punched all around the page with Martha Stewart punches. Okay, no I didn't lol. The box itself I used 300gm, fine and sturdy, the top and bottom shaped part was Linen. Top is stamped with Hero Arts background stamps with Tim Holtz inks.

 Stampavie Sarah Kay A Little bit of Country, adorable aren't they? Coloured with Promarkers and Fleximarkers
 Hero Art background stamps - Small Dots/small flowers, You're So Special - Truly Appreciated set and Leaf Flourish stamp
Velvet/Lace ribbon - Craft shop Elgin
Memorybox corner leaf die
Ribbon Binding, Roses, Pearls, Charms from stash
Frosted Lace Stickles added to Roses/Leaves

 Special Birthday Celebrations over on this month. 2nd entry/gift box

Charmed I'm sure  -

Brown and Blue/  -

Always anything Goes -
