A souvenir from Venice

Hi again !

This is not a second post in a day but still its a post on a consecutive day ! Well, I had to share this new creation, its basically recycling of a normal cardboard box, but which carried a very special souvenir from Venice, I bought it from an island there and this is how it was originally contained in a box

And this glass boat I have tell you gave me a real hard time, I had to carry it in my hand bag for the entire journey (not to mention the airport formalities, I had one poor friend who was carrying a similar boat back home and it was broken while in her suitcase !) Well thank god I have it in one piece adorning my show case :) I transformed the box it into something like below

Has it not turned into something so gorgeous, I don't even feel like parting with the box !
The papers are from DCWV, Flowers from Itsy Bitsy - English Roses Vintage small, handmade butterfly,punched leaves, gems and buttons from stash and voila !

Tell me how do you find it ! I would be entering this for

Itsy Bitsy Craft flowers

Hi girls

I have been too lazy to do some posts lately but that is not keeping me away from scrapping ! While there are a lot of unfinished projects which I wish to complete and post here soon...I have done this one especially for Itsy Bitsy craft flowers challenge. The flower range with Itsy bitsy is very versatile and competitive, compared to other flower brands available in craft market.
I have quiet a lot of different Itsy Bitsy flowers for adorning a variety of projects.

Since the challenge demanded anything but a card/LO, I decided to embellish this box below which I bought about 2 yrs back...for no real purpose...but with these flowers, it has turned into something much more useful and very pretty, of course !

And this is how it looked like afterwards

The Itsy bitsy flowers used are Antique fusion flowers bubble gum, Harmony flowers bubble gum and English Roses Small Vintage

And now a close up of the pretty flowers.And oh yes, did you check out the creativity at the itsy bitsy blog, Sunehra has come up with some real innovative ways to use the flowers, its something to look at !
