Treasure Chest Challenge

Hi Everyone!
Hope your enjoying your day today.

My good friend Darlene aka Dars Crafty Creations and I
went shopping together a while back and bought items to
 alter and this is one of the items we both got and challenged
 each other to alter, then post on our blogs at the same time.

Here is a snippet of hers

You need to go see her fabulous treasure chest, she is so talented!!!
 Its so much fun wondering what the other one
 is doing with theirs LOL and its all so hush hush LOL.
You know Top Secret LOL
What fun we have doing this!!!! Hope you like our creations and
 that they inspire you to try something different!

Here is what mine turned out like.

It's hard to see but the flowers all have stickles and rhinestones
to make them sparkle like the paper I used to cover the
Chest on the outside has in it's flowers which again
doesn't show up in the photograph.
Well what do you think of my Treasure Chest?
I would love to hear from you!
 Remember to go see Darlenes too!
(click on the pink name to go there)
Here is a list of what I used:
DCWV Sweet Stack paper
Handle from local hardware store
Flowers from my stash
Feathers from Hobby Lobby
Sizzix die
Distress Ink
Gold Pilot Marker
Kids fun foam (I glued strips of left over paper to it
added the gold to match the outside and layed it
on the bottom of the inside. I did not glue it down
 incase whoever buys it decides they do not want it in there.

This sure was fun !!!
I am sending a big THANK YOU to Darlene
for being my partner in this fun filled secret adventure!!!
Hugs and blessings to all
