Valentine's Day Swap

I am in a Valentine box swap.....so, I wanted to show a few pictures of the box I made. I used a Vintage image that I bought from Kris Hurst.....it is lovely.....sorry the lighting is so bad. If you click on the picture the image is easier to see.
The box is covered with a beautiful vintage flocked wallpaper that I bought from Holly.
I dyed the silk ribbon with pomegranate green tea....it is a beautiful soft shade of pink!
I used lots of dresdens to foof it up!!
I wrapped it in pink crepe paper that I twisted to look like a rose......Inside are lots of goodies, I will show pictures of them later.
Have a lovely day.
