Elphine House Australia Challenge - Alter it

 Its that time for a new Elphine House Australia Challenge!

The challenge is to Alter it!
I am really looking forward to see all your altered bits and pieces!

As always to enter our challenge you have to use a Elisabeth Bell image. Any of her images count and there are so many out there! The prize is two Elphine House Australia Stamps! You must go have a look in the EHA store and check out all the stamps available now, the collection is really building up and i love them all!

(warning - a little picture heavy!!!)
For this challenge i have altered a Cigar Box with the gorgeous Daisy sitting on the top.

Image - Daisy (Sitting), Elphine House Australia 
Papers - MME lost and found 2 (yes i do have a thing for MME papers!)
Dies - Tim Holtz Paper Rosette Die, Scalloped Circle Nestie
Embellishments - Lace, ribbon, pearls buttons, beading and tulle all from my stash.
The metal handle was recycled from a old CD storage box.

I would like to enter into the following challenges;
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes
Love To Create - Bingo - Buttons, Lace and Die Cuts
Crafty Emmas Challenge - Anything Goes (Sad to see its the last challenge!)
