Mini Gift Box

Being it was a snowday~~got about 13 inches of snow with high winds~~My Boss decided to play it safe for patients and employees ;)   Took the day to catch up on laundry, cleaning, made cookies and of course played in craft room!!

Created a Gift Box!!! Started out as a wooden box.........painted with some Extreme Rose glitter acrylic paint and It didn't cover as nicely as I wanted so I then painted over that with Black Cherry Twinkling h2o's and Whola~~ I Love the outcome :D
Doesn't the box look quite distressed or vintagy~~Nice :)  Used my Maggie Mini Angel and colored her with copics and the stickles caused her wings to look distressed--oh well~~she is so cute anyway :)
Floral decor: Roses are nestled on Magnolia doo hickey doily petals and WO leaf.  Added crystal spray and blinged roses and Magnolia doo hickey dragonfly with Viva Decor Holo Iridescent glitter liner pen and stardust stickles.  Complimented with pearls and Modern Romance Love Charm.
Very sparkly and shiney!!!
Inside: After painting added decorative touch with pink swirly paper cut out with SB deckled rectangle nestie and added SU whimsical words sentiment~~"happiness Always"

Challenges entering:
MDUC #84~~ Distressing
CRAFT #90~~ Not a Card!!
SSCC~~ Pink
