Recycled box

Hello everyone,

I thoroughly enjoyed making this one, made it in 1 day flat and now its ready to be gifted . I have tried to use vivid and bright colours so reminiscent of spring and also my new dies..

This was the Tea Bag Box before -

Here's how it looks after recycling it -

Just loving the cheery lynn Anastasia border ,it looks perfectly like a crochet lace. Also i simplyadore these tiny Impression Obsession butterflies ,they add a lovely flutter I have added a second layer onto the butterflies by die cutting a leftover white lacy doily , and distressed it too. I think it makes a wonderful idea to die cut a lacy doily ,gives a delicate touch.Here's a look at the bloom , it nearly took me 2 hours to make this chyrsanthmum 

 A few more closeups-

Hope these blooms brighten your day :)
Happy Weekend !

Challenges to be entered - ,pattern paper, pearls orflowers, pattern paper, stamping or bflies, pp, distressing)
