what!! another explosion>???

Its a friend of mines 50th birthday soon so gave me chance to be as creative as I wanted for her
not quite sure why I picked these colours but I am so glad I did, its paper mania double sided card
this is the top of the box
I handmade the flower using a spiral with a scallopped edge and then rolling it and finally adding some stickles glitter to make it shimmer
this will be perfect for the challenge at
prarie fairys -vmake your own flower
this is each layer inside I used some peel off butterflies stuck onto acetate and then I was able to make the wings stand out
this will be good for the challenge at
crafty creations - beautiful inside
here it is inside all glued and ready to be fastend together
I just have to go out and get the gift to go inside now
the challenge at polka doodles is make a gift box

other ideal challenges are

the secret crafter - sparkle and shine
delightful sketches - glitter it up
and I think thats it!!!
thanks for stopping by
