Vintage Shabby chic box frame

This frame started off pine I painted it with cream acrylic paint and sanded it once it was dry, I went around the edges with antique rub and buff. The inside was lined with a piece of card stock from the DCVW mariposa stack, then I distressed a piece of white lace with Tim Holtz antique linen re-inker and water with a pinch of mica powder. I added a little antique gold looking frame and some leaves and a flower from wild orchid crafts. the outside of the box was decorated with some more wild orchid crafts flowers and some Prima stamps from the printery collection:Vintage Imagery.
