Anything Goes

Eucalypt Homewares handcrafted ceramic worksThis is the Picture Inspiration that the Outlawz gave us for its Saturday Paper a la Mode - Anything Goes Challenge this week.  I've had an empty cardboard salt container on my craft table for a while.   My intention was to make it into a catch all for colored pencils, rulers, and other tools.  One look at this picture and I knew it was time to decorate that container.  

I took a sheet of white CS and cut it into 1" strips, then stamped each strip differently, added ink to the edges, and glued them to the cardboard.  I glued on a couple strips of white rick-rack to cover the seam.  I found some crocheted embellishments (Time to make some more; they come in handy.) in my stash, blue bling and some feathery blue thread. 

What do you think?

I think I'll also enter this in the following challenges:
