What would you attempt to do...?

Hi everyone,
I decided to have a little change and make a gift box so I have a few photos to share with you. I used one of the Lili of the Valley Life's Journey Quotables (which I absolutely love) with some papers from the Bear Necessities pad. Also, I've finally had a go at using frantage and it will definitely be making a regular appearance from now on! I have also used:
Lace, hessian ribbon, cheesecloth, crystal pin, large pearls (for the feet) - Ribbon Girl
Shabby bark heart - Live and Love Crafts
Flowers (with added glitter) - Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls, butterflies - Samuel Taylors
Pearl flourishes - LOTV shop

A side-view so you can see the pearl feet:
And a close-up of the lid:
I'm entering my gift box into the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Pretty Papers
Ribbon Girl - Colour Challenge: Pastel
Divas by Design - Pretty in Glitter
Deep Ocean Challenge - At Least One Flower

Thank you so much for stopping by. Sorry I haven't been to visit you all for a few days - I'll catch up with you soon!

Have a lovely evening,
