Best Wishes...


Wishing you all a great day to start
off a restful, peaceful weekend.

A friend gave me several small boxes and here is how I transformed one of them using a vintage postcard. First covered the box with some pretty paper. Printed out two copies of the vintage Birthday postcard. Glued one copy on the outside, cut out the oval picture of the girls, then glued the second copy inside the box for a 3-D effect. Embellished with a bit of muslin scrap and tiny dried blue baby's breath. (click to enlarge for a detailed image)

Tuck in a few dried rose petals and
this would be one card sure to be
treasured for some time to come.
