I decided to alter a round box. I wanted to use blue and purple in my project. I am so
happy how it turned out! I think this is one of my best projects to date!



Here is a little closer up overall picture of the box..


I love this quote about winter and wanted to incorporate it into the project.



I used several of the products from the store including:

Silver Mesh Bling
Mini purple acrylic flowers 
1" Ivory organza butterfly
Purple berry and crystal spray ring
Clear 1" crystals
Vintage satin purple eyelet lace







For the purple acrylic cyrstals, I used Ranger Adirondak alcohol ink in Purple Twilight 

and I think they turned out gorgeous!! LOL

Love the box! Love the quote you used and of course the bling. I'm always so scared of using alcohol inks, will have to give them a whirl.
