Another Altered Project

Hello All!!
The theme for this months challenge at ITSY BITSY is to use White on White with a sparkle of silver.

Personally I adore this duo, very soothing,  divine & royal.......but was unable to create magic with it.
I had reluctantly given up on the challenge until yesterday when I started with a Celebration Chocolates Jar (both my daughters love chocolates & I the boxes!!!).......

.............................& ended with this.......................pristine & sparkling, isn't it????

The jar is covered with a layer of parchment & a rectangle doily.
The white blooms are handmade from scallop circle die cuts. For this flower I have used alternate layers of printed handmade paper & parchment paper. Embellished with a few more & my favorite fringed flowers. The leaves are punched & butterfly diecut (Itsy Bitsy Butterfly trio thin cuts).

A closer look at the lid..................

One of flower is made with printed handmade paper & the other with parchment paper.
The sides of the lid are decorated with a doily & a fabric ribbon.

A look at the gorgeous fabric bow!! The fabric is from my daughter's costume, the pearl string is a RAK from Yvonne.

When I showed this to my hubby......................he exclaimed is this a bride!!!

And I'm so glad you persevered with this challenge. I think the colour scheme has been a shade daunting for most folks but see the finished result is a complete dream!
