2nd Box for It's All About the Vintage

My friends know I love decorating boxes...they are always so useful and fun to do.  Wishing to use the lovely bundle of trims from our sponsor,  Nauhataivas I decorated a second box for It's All About the Vintage.

The box is quite a large box and I painted it with red acrylic paint, distressing the edges with gold acrylic buffer paint.  The flowers on the lid of the box were edged with the gold paint and black Stickles was added to the centre of the flowers.

The box was stamped randomly with an Indigo Blue "crackle" stamp and the text stamp from Mr Holtz's Papillion plate of stamps.  

The gorgeous black trims are from  Nauhataivas as was the string of pearls on the tag (these were silver but I aged with black ink).
The butterfly is a Craftable die from Marianne Design which I layered twice and added glossy accents for shine.  The Papillion text on the tag was embossed with gold.

The image of the vintage girls is from Pion and is beautiful!

I would like to enter the following challenges with my 2nd box.
