Anything Goes and A Wedding!

Sassy Studio Designs
is sponsoring not one but two challenges today!
The first is The Crafty Bloggers Network
their theme is "Anything Goes"
and the second is Card Mania
with the theme "Wedding or Anniversary"
I decided to make a keepsake box for my niece,
who is getting married in January...

I took a plain white box that I bought
at Taylored Expressions.
I used a piece of paper from a wedding kit called
Country Boutique Wedding Papers Mini Kit by Fancy Pants.
I bought that from PartTime Sally.
I distressed the paper, added white gesso,
crackle paste, course pumice paste and an iridescent paint.
I used mod podge over the entire box
and then added the image
and added more mod podge over that.
The images was colored with Copics,
fairy dust paint, and glitter on the veil.
I added rhinestones for her ring and earring.
The charms are from Michael's...
I love the added engagement ring!
The flowers are from Wild Orchid...
the black were white and colored with
black Copic marker.
I sprayed all of them with diamond spritz.
I hope she likes it as much as I liked making it!
