Joan's Challenge #9 recycled box

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a great time at the dog show yesterday. The new time change has not affected me much. I was up at five and creating.
Yes another challenge at Joan's.
This is the challenge this week...
Joan's Challenge #9 recycled box
These are the requirements...
Use a recycled box (round)
Color theme is your choice
Use some lace
Use some pearls and flowers
Here is my recycled box....
 This is my box. It is not a food box, but a left over christmas box. It is now spring so instead of storing this box I am recycling it for the challenge.
 This is the top of my box. I had to think a bit. My cardstock that covers the box is from DCWV. The doily die is cut from a Cheery Lynn die you can purchase at Joan's. I created my flowers using dies. Joan has a great selection of flower dies. For pearls I added a pearl spray and pearls to the centers of my flowers. I purchased the Webster's pages cameos from Joan's awhile back. They were just so beautiful I could not pass them up. The cameo worked perfect for the top of this box.
 This is a side view of my box. Also added to the lid is pillow lace and ribbon trim with beads. On the bottom section of my box I added a band of glitter. I used the double sided sticky tape to add the glitter. I burnished it with my finger so that my glitter would not flack off.
A close up of the cameo. I have always loved cameos. Even as a child they always caught my eye. Things are always great when they take you back to fond childhood memories.
Thanks Selma and Joan for a wonderful challenge!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
