Rona's Birthday Box

Hi everyone, hope you are all well in the land of blogging??
Well I'm doing much better and have just been doing lots of blog challenges to keep me busy! But now I'm back to working and have enjoy doing this SO SO SO much!!!
I was asked by Liz to make this box for a girly "older" lady. She was into shopping, shoes and holidays and orchids. I've tried to add a touch of this into the box! Fingers crossed it is just what they are looking for it!!

So on to the details:
I used a pale lilac 12x12 card stock for the base and some K&Co paper stock. Also used mirror card that I embossed in my cuttlebug and some pearl paper for the layers! I use my Gorjuss girl stamp Flower Girl and coloured her with Whisper pens and glossed her dress. I also used a image I took of orchids when we were at Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh and decoupaged it up! In the center I made my wee vase of mulberry flowers and also some wee bags I handmade myself with added brads and wires for handles. To finish the box I used peel-offs, gems, punched flowers and some wire coils!
