…you do not gather the beauty of the flower

I’m sharing the matching box to my previous post’s card, again featuring the beautiful Delicate Wings die from Sizzix.

For the box I used a pattern from Nicole’s Stamp Addiction.  Nicole does the most amazing patterns for the Silhouette, this one was super quick and easy to put together.  Once the base box was done I had some fun embellishing to match the card.

Over at Studio 75 they have a fun bingo board, which I used to help embellish my box.  I was already going to use flowery paper, as that was requested by the person who commissioned this set.  A search through my chippie stash turned up the pieces that looked a bit like flames (I think they were branches actually) and a bit of distress ink helped with the effect.  That left me pearls for the row so I added these over the small holes in the box overlay.  I actually made the box first so carried over the chippie and pearls to the card to help them match.

The current theme at Moving Along with the Times is birds and feathers so I am also entering my box there.  At Shopping Our Stash they have a rose challenge happening.  The roses on my box have languished in my stash for a while now; I went CAS last year and haven’t been using flowers much at all but was good to get some out and on a project again.
