It's Your Special Day!!

 Hello everyone!! 
I am back again today to share a very fun project using an old
 wooden cigar box. 
 
It's my turn to post at the
Little Darlings Inspiration blog today so you will find this post there also.
I do hope to inspire you!!
 
I have used 2 very cute images from the 2013 Winter CHA Release. I have masked together the very cute Top Hat & Tails and the gorgeous Zsa Zsa they are from the Cutie Pies Collection. I have also used a sentiment that I felt is perfect from the Warm and Fuzzy Birthday Sentiments
Some of the patterned papers are from the "Summer Sorbet" collection, which I just LOVE!! 
All items named above can be found at  the Little Darlings Rubber Stamp Store.

 Papers:"Summer Sorbet" collection, American Craft.
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Memento, Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink around paper edges (worn Lipstick) I have also used Tea Dye around the box edge.
Accessories: Tulle, ribbons, paper flowers, pearls,Charms (heart, key) Book board hearts, rhinestones, Down in the right hand corner I have used a Metal photo corner (I have painted it white) . I found this very heavy OLD metal key turn in my box of finds. I have dry brushed it with white paint. I have used stickles for around the Summer Sorbet pink paper edge and around the sentiment and on the crown and dress of Zsa Zsa.
Dies: Go Create, DoCraft, Magnolia Heart Tag., Spellbnders Shapabilities.
I have used foam tape and 1/2" Scor-Tape to put my project together. I have used Papermania Urban Stamps on the Heart Tag.

The first thing I have done is paint my wooden cigar box with white acrylic paint. Then I have added the paper using the very strong 1/2" Scor-Tape
I have then inked the edges and used my sanding block to make it look old like it should instead of re-done.
