Buttons and Bows reveal-Whimsical Designs

I've been dying to create one of these keep sake boxes and I finally got the chance..  About a week ago, I received a package from Stephanie and she had sent me lots goodies and with those goodies came a wooden box..  I knew I wanted to do some mixed media on it and add lots pretty flowers, etc..

So, here is what I ended up with:
This was kind of difficult to photograph, so I have a lot of pics for you.. 
But as you can see, I layered lots of papers (by Prima), then did some inking and stamping. Finally cut out two big hearts out of thick paper and glued them to the middle of the lid.. Adding lots of pretty pink flowers by IamRoses, big pink Ribbon, pearl trim and a cute sentiment by Whimsical Designs..

here are some more photos of the project:
