Commission Piece completed

My SIL asked me to make a card house for a friend of hers only she didn't want a house, wanted a simple box with pearls and padding.  I hate to admit this - but simple is not in my vocabulary.  I suggested a treasure chest with a tufted top.  I used a premade card box from Michaels, removed the fabric and went to work.  I added batting, covered the bottom with moire taffeta which has a pattern that resembles wood grain.  The top was covered with matching satin and tufted with pearls.  I added some trims and more pearls.  I also recycled the large "knob" by covering it with some trim and surrounding it with flowers.  Hope she likes it.  My SIL did.
