Shabby Beautiful

Another week and another gorgeous challenged over at The Shabby Tea Room.  This weeks theme is 'Shabby Beautiful' and to create a card or project inspired by the photo below and to use pink, aqua and neutrals plus flowers and make it shabby.

I have made a little pillow box. I think I was inpsired by the distressed look of the shelves in the photo so for the box I have choosen a paper with this effect.   I have used papers from Pink Petticoat called Perfect Papers.  The flower is made from a mixture of vellum and organza.  I have stamped the bird and used pink embossing powder.  I have added some pearls, ribbon and lace to finish the box.

Please check out the other Shabby Girls blogs for some gorgeous inspiration and join in the challenge.
