A bit of a change

This box came about slightly by accident.
I had intended printing a piece of backing paper, but had inadvertently left a piece of card in the printer and so I set about making a project with it rather than simply using it as a rather thick DP!
The download is from Pollycraft from a set called Cloudy Pearl. They are all fabulous papers.
After making the box, I embellished it with some Nellie's Choice Flowers made from a Punch and Emboss set, and finished with punched splat centres and adhesive pearls.
The butterfly digi image is by Chris Dark, the Sketching Stamper (link on my sidebar), coloured with Copics. The hole in the centre of the box was made with an X Cut circle cutter as I discovered that the box lid was to wide to go through my Cuttlebug. I used a Stampin' Up punch to add the decoration around the side of the box.
It is for a bunch of challenges.
