What's in the box?

This is my very first explosion card. When you lift off the lid the sides fall down as shown in the picture below. Thay can be a little time consuming, but the finished product looks awesome.
Several challenges all rolled into this card.
Cupcake Craft Challenge
- Blooms & Charms
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Say it with Flowers
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie Challenge
- Pearl (I coloured my pearls dark blue)
Stamp Something - 2 of Something (2 butterflies)
Flutter By Wednesdays - Butterfly, fairy or angel. (Butterflies of course!)
Pile it on Challenge - Out of the Box.

This is a picture of the box standing up open.

This is Noble Tilda, surrounded with various flowers (glittered with Kindy Glitz), Maya Road pins, and two Magnolia butterflies, which I have stuck onto long pieces of acetate to have them flying free. I have used Websters Papers, cardstock and finished off some edges with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Copic markers I used for Tilda & butterflies
Hope you like her!
