Lucky Me Box

I wanted to share this St. Patty's Day box I made using file from SVG Attic.  I decided to go with a shabby chic feel on it.  I used the Lucky Me kit  for the Lucky Me and postage stamp cuts.  The box itself was from the Basic Deep Lid Boxes kit.  The patterned paper is from DCWV's Guy stack. 
 Here is a top view.  I added green bling, chocolate truffle trendy twine, glossy accents and white gel pen accents.  All the edges of the papers were inked with dark brown chalk ink.
I added green leaves and Washington white rumpled ribbon all around the lid and tied it in a double bow in the front.  The little glittered shamrock charm is from Snapdragon Snippets' March Charms set.  I added two layers of glossy accents to it so it really shines!
And of course, since it is a box, here it is opened!
Have a wonderfully crafty day!
