Friend's 70th Birthday

****************

This is an 8" square card and box for my friend's 70th birthday.

I've had this lovely vintage paper saved on my computer for ages and have forgotten where it came from. The index page just says NBK . I digitally painted out the centre  and added an overlay of music after adjusting the opacity to make it look more shabby and distressed.








I gritted my teeth (cos I really just want to stroke this and not actually use it) and made a large double bow with some gorgeous deep pink silk ribbon from Linda's Funkie Junkie  boutique and also forced myself to part with some of the beautiful venice lace.






I painted the  large WOC rose with Winsor & Newton iridescent medium to give it a bit of shine and sparkle and made a stick pin with three pink pearls and a bead cap






I have used the same BP printed with a greeting for the inside






The box is simply decorated with a seam binding bow and another flower from WOC.
* The box is actually white - the lighting when I took the pic makes it look cream



Challenges
WOC #57 - summer flowers
Charisma #33 - lace
Paperplay #34 - sentiment as the main focus
