Just A Touch of Romance

Happy Hellos Everyone:

I hope your Friday as gotten off to a fantastic start and I hope your weekend is full of promise and lots of football...GO RAVENS. Today concludes our week-long parade of altered cigar boxes. I'm pretty sure another parade is on the horizon. I hope have enjoyed viewing my boxes as much as I hade fun creating each one. Today's box a just a touch of romance. Take a look...

Forgive me. I cannot remember the name of the DP. I have had the papers for
some time. Of course in my mind, that's a sign that I really like this particular paper.
The flock paper is from a show I attended in King of Prussia a few years ago.
Originally, the color was hot pink. I deepened the hue to coordinate with the DP.

Here you see more of that hot pink I was referring to.
I also distressed the areas where the edges and corners meet.

I adorned the lid of the box with a little bling. I didn't think that
was enough, so I made a nest of pearls from some left over netting.

Here's a closer look. I also pulled out some of my Tim Holtz goodies to create this
'beautiful you' embellishment. I think it turned out pretty good, if I say so myself.

Here's another view.

A view from the inside of the lid of the box.

 ...and of course, my Tim Holtz foundations.

As always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
