Exploding Butterfly Box

I can't believe that this is my 100th post. My goodness, that has gone quickly! Here's a little something that I've made for my One Stop Craft Challenge DT submission. Angie has set the theme of this week's challenge which is:

Things with Wings

Why not pop over to the challenge and join in?

I thought I'd use this challenge to make my first exploding box.

The items that I've used in this are:
Lilac and blue card.
Lilac gingham card, cream card with blue spot circles and pale blue satin card. All are from a 10 sheets mixed pack on special offer.
The Vellum Butterfly Leaves paper is absolutely beautiful.
I stamped the butterflies onto tracing paper in clear ink and embossed them with silver tinsel embossing powder.
The stamp set is a Kodomo Butterfly Set
Lilac and blue brads
Lilac and blue die cut flowers

Tim Holtz distress ink in LavenderMilled Lavender and Broken China
Card candy pearl circles

Hope you like it
