Less is more, but.......

I love adding the finishing touches and can't seem to stop myself adding more! Anyway this is my entry for the Happy Daze  made with Wood challenge.

Happy Daze are also offering Easter Egg Candy here in the form of a £25 gift voucher to spend in their shop.

I used a wood case available from Happy Daze  and some valenciennes trim in a gorgeous dusty vintage pink. I used some german scrap, but as I only had gold, I coloured it with a silver krylon pen. The pink paper is from the Tim Holtz vintage shabby pad and the feet are from his ideology range. The stamp is one of my favourites at the moment from Crafty Individuals CI-306. The blooms are kaiserkraft which are available from Merly Impressions. I had some cream lace which I coloured pink and used to back a cameo. I made a mould of a blue cameo, then used hearty clay to make an impression which I painted pink to match the colour scheme. Hearty clay is very light and the texture reminds me very much of those pink shrimps I used to eat as kid!

The back of the box has an old image of a pears advertisement and is one of the many free images available from The Graphics fairy 

Happy Easter to everyone. I'm just off to munch my way through some cream eggs!
