Flower Box

I don't know why I decided to take on a large project right before going on vacation,  but I did.  I would work on it a while and then pack a few things, then work on it again.  I will probably be missing half my clothes when I open my suitcase.
The entire box is made with double-sided cardstock.  Around the top is a piece of lace I bought a while back and now I wish I had a couple of spools of it.  I just love the way it looks around the top of things.
The butterfly is a recycled piece.  The greeting which is from CS Designs is on the top of two mats.  All three were cut with a Spellbinder die. 
This is a close-up view of the greeting which is part of the new Garden Collection at CS Designs.
This is the inside of the box.  It reveals the other four digitals that are included in the CS Designs' Garden Collection.  This group just came out and it had such possibilities.  All the digitals were colored with Copic markers.  Each individual  graphic is on four layers of cardstock.
Since the greeting is about friends being flowers, I decided to fill the center with flowers.  The flowers, made with a Tim Holtz die  are touched with Stickles to make them shine on the tips of the petals.  If you have a chance to visit CS Designs, you will find this collection along with other outstanding digitals.
