Sugar Nellie Picking Flower

Hi Everyone!! Hope you all are having a lovely day!  I am not to well at the moment, but just thinking of crafting make me feel a lot better!!

Well let’s have a look what I have for you all today!
Another covered Box!

This box started its live as a perfume gift box
I covered the box with K & Co paper 12 x 12

I used a Sugar Nellie rubber stamp and I really love her.
I used Promarkers to colour her in
I used distressed ink and inked the edges 

I layered my image on a oval I cut out and embossed with a Grand Calibur
I took a small doily and cut the center out and glued it around the 
R-hand side of my image topper and formed  a lace border

I made more handmade roses and added some stickles  
I used a Holly Leave Punch and punched some leaves and added some detail with a embossing tool to the leaves
I glued more bought roses 

I decorated the inside of the box with  a Magnolia Tilda Stamp

 I used Promarkers to colour her in
I cut a scalloped rectangular out and embossed with a Grand Calibur
I used distressed ink and inked the edges 
I added a bit of ribbon to give the elution she is sitting on a something

I took a handmade rose and added some stickles  
I used a Holly Leave Punch and punched some leaves and added some detail with a embossing tool
I glued 3 more bought roses 
I added a bow and glued a pearl to the center of the bow 

I decorated the sides of the lid with a stripy K & Co paper 
and glued dotted  ribbon top and bottom

Really hope you enjoyed looking at this project as I enjoyed making it!
