Totally Papercrafts #56 Pearls and Lace

Hello everyone - we have a lovely new challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts today. My fabulous teamie, Carol has chosen the theme of   Pearls and Lace
Can't wait to see your entries and we have a great sponsor for you this week, it's the lovely Emma, at Crafty Emma's Store.




 I have had this recipe box for ages, and although it's full of our fav. family recipes, I just never got round to covering it.

Then, when I got some gorgeous new papers from Crafty Emma's Store,
I knew I had to use them.
The recipe box is on my kitchen counter, so I can have my fix of these lush papers every day..  lol**

First of all, I covered the whole box with pink paper, then layered on my dp - Prima, Madeline. 

The shaped piece on the lid was cut from the DP too.
Then I added a sentiment, made on my comp and some Prima swirls and pearls.

I put blue lace and pink ribbon around the box,
attached a bow, with a little glittered heart and then tucked in another heart and a butterfly sentiment from Craftwork cards.

'Recipe' was die cut on my Big Shot with Sizzix, Bug in a Rug dies.
