Grunge Art Girl Card Keeper created by hand texture)

I am part of the creative troupe over at C&T publishers and they sent me this blank card keeper box to alter for them. It contains 10 envelopes and is a nice little box to keep your cards in. I decided I wanted to do a pink grunge instead of the usual dark brown grunge I usually do! I covered the lot with painted papers, flowers, lace, burnt lutradur, mesh and stamped images from crafty individuals and finally wax....so lots and lots of texture

Inside is a card made using papers, paint, lace, material and a stampington flower image
This is what the original looks like..it has lots of creative potential..you could cover it with scrapbook papers, paint it or even cover it with fabric. To have a look at the C&T shop just click the bird badge to the right with "I love fiber art" and this will take you to the shop.
The challenge over at Created by Hand is Texture so I think this fits the bill nicely!
