Something a bit different

Something a bit different form me today I got given this cute little box of choccies for mothers day which I couldn't bear to part with and like many things it got put in my pile of "I could do something with that" it wasn't untill I recieved my new Prima Fairy Belle papers that I pulled it out again.

I have covered the box with the gorgeous papers inking the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and adding some sparkle with stickles.

I cut the flower with my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die from some more of the Prima papers again all the edges have been inked and stickled. I've used a blank brad in the middle with a Prima Pearl stuck on it to hold the flower together and lastly added a couple of small punched butterflies and some small pink pearls.

I would like to enter this box into the following challenges:
Ladybird Crafts Ink - Anything But A Square
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - The Man, The Myth, The Legend - Tim Holtz
Crafting For All Seasons - Handmade Flowers
Frilly & Funky - Alter It
