Deep Ocean DT - Lace and Pearls

Hi everyone,
Oh no I'm a day late with my Deep Ocean DT creation! It took longer than I thought it would to complete and then I've had loads of problems today with my laptop - I hate technology sometimes, can't live with it, can't live without it!
Our theme this fortnight is a beautiful one -
'Lace and Pearls'

My creation tonight is a criss cross card and gift box combined in the shape of a purse/handbag
The base of the box and card are Go Kreate and Spellbinders. Magnolia's Tilda with rose basket is coloured with DI's, surrounded by SU text and edge stamps and cut from Spellbinders labels two die. Other accessory dies used: TH weathered clock, Magnolia DooHickeys tag, peaky floral tab, antique lace, afternoon tea bench. The pearl lace is new to my stash from Live and Love Crafts. Pearl pin, ribbon and lace, WOC flowers and pearls are all from my stash. The gorgeous paper is all Magnolia.

The criss cross card insert has the Magnolia peaky floral tab crossed at the top to represent the purse clasp.

Inside and small sides of the box are covered using Maja paper, and more pearls are randomly scattered.

Back of the box, decorated with more lace and pearls, plus Magnolia DooHickey tea bench and small  WOC rose buds entwined.

Close up showing frantage, pearl maker pen, and silver gel pen detail along with that gorgeous lace.

We have the lovely Sandy from Live and Love Crafts sponsoring us

with this fab prize for one lucky winner

Hope you can join us....
