While I was doing some Spring cleaning, I realized that I didn't have room for all my jewellery in my jewellery box, so I decided to make myself a little extra space to store some of the excess. I wanted something "classic" so I used the beautiful "For Always" paper pack, along with black and desert sand cardstock to cover the My Creations chipboard card box.  A little embellishing and voila!
