Purple - Lilac - Violette

The French Violette Lady from The Graphics Fairy, the Purple/Lilac challenge from Sketchy Colors and the template from Stempeleinmaleins - a perfect match. And it all started with a little box
which turned into

match box
paper - plain lilac/pink card, The Graphics Fairy
fabric/ribbon/button - from my stash
image - The Graphics Fairy
flowers/brad - Artemio
blings - Kanban
Nestabilities - Label8, oval and oval scallop shapes

I covered the outside of the inner part of the box with vintage wallpaper from The Graphics Fairy, attached a button as "handle" and lined it with fabric lining (I haven't done this for a while, I have to practice).
The outside is embellished with image, flowers, blings, ribbon, ... I deliberately did not do any distressing but left it in an clean untouched state which I quite like.
I think I will make some more of these boxes with a Christmas theme and will show you next time. Petra.
