Vintage Mini Book Box

It's the 5th March and time for another challenge over at More Mixed always it is anything goes, but each month there is the option to use the colour chosen for each month.
The colour for March is Green.

I sealed the paper mache box box with gesso, then painted it in pale green acrylic paint by Kaisercraft.
The spine cracked slightly when the paint was dry, but that just added to the vintage look, so I wasn't particularly bothered.

I layered fabrics on the lid and added the green lace, roses ribbon, the image and buttons.

I lined the inside of the box with some fab papers that our boss lady Lozzy gave me for christmas.

Isn't this little girl adorable..I found her over at Alpha Stamps on one of their collage I just had to buy some of the sheets.
Do pop over and have a look and hopefully enter this months challenge..our design team are waiting to visit and leave some love on your blogs...
