Dream Valley - Things with Wings

Hello again Crafters!  I just wanted to say thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes I received on Friday!  I passed it relatively quietly as my daughter is still sick.  Good news is that we finally have our car back, and fingers crossed it stays that way!

Our next challenge at Dream Valley is to show us your Things with Wings!  Our sponsor is One Stop Card Crafts.  They have donated this as the prize:

I have made an explosion box (my first attempt!) with white and bashful blue paper and ink from Stampin' Up. 

 The flowers are made using Stampin' Up set In Full Bloom.  The sentiment on the inside was made using a stamp from Stampin' Up set A Greeting for all Reasons.  

The butterflies were punched out and glittered with diamond dust and adhered with the "Ultimate" glue.  The ribbon is from my stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges as well:

By the Cute and Girly - cute and girly
Just Add Ink - box or a bag
SSDS - glitz

Have a great week!

    Scrappy Love,

  19. How soft and beautiful is this! Love your sparkly butterflies and the fact that when the box opens it's a little different from the norm in that it's not 4 separate flaps but a very clever and fancy fold creating the box.
