Stamping With The Dragon challenge "Spring has sprung "

Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy! Have you anything nice planned for the weekend? I am hoping that this weekend my craft room will be finally ready to move into, I cant wait im so excited!
Its Challenge time over at Stamping With The Dragon and today I have to share with you a heart shaped box that I have altered. I have really enjoyed doing it and it was my first time using Modge Podge  & im quite pleased with the results.

Goodies Used
Base: Large heart shaped box lined with a lovely purple felt on the inside.
Covering: I covered both the lid and the base of the box with papers from the gorgeous Spring In Bloom colection.
Flowers: Rough torn spirals of paper from the Spring In Bloom collection & rolled up to create the roses.
Die Cuts: Printed card butterflies from my stash and bird cage given to me by the lovely Fiona Crisp. I sprayed the bird cage with pink shimmer spray by Dawn Bibby.
Ribbon:  6mm sage green ribbon from my stash that i tied into a bow every 6cm and wove around the roses.
Pearls: String pearls from my stash placed around the edge of the lid.
I used Modge Podge to glue the felt to the inside of the lid and base of the box, the papers to the outside and finished the whole thing off with a final layer all over, it has given it a lovely subtle sheen. I highly recomend it.
We would love for you to pop over to the blog and enter the challenge this fortnight there is a fab prize on offer for the winner and you know what they say " you gotta be in it to win it "! and why not come and see us at the Stamping Dragon Facebook group where theres lots of laughter,crafty chat & fun challenges to be found.
