Fantastic Friday!

Hello and Happy Friday!
As promised, I am here, showing off my latest 3-D project. As I mentioned, I cannot take complete credit for this little beauty. The original idea came from an e-mail I received from Andrea Walford, in which there was a link to the instructions to make this box. Hers was a Christmas box, and the top incorporated a Christmas card. Mine was adjusted to use non-Christmas stuff, so it would be more applicable to spring. And of course, I had to incorporate my new fave colour, Rich Razzleberry. Plus I had a lot of extra Cottage Wall dsp, so it was very convenient to use the Razzleberry for this project.
I love using transparencies to create butterflies, but on their own they're hard to see. So I used white Staz-On to sponge around the edges, and then some swirly parts from Baroque Motifs to decorate the wings. It reminds me of the new SU embosslits that cuts and embosses 5 (?) butterflies of different sizes at once. The biggest one has a bit of a swirl at the bottom.
Not wanting to over-think things and take too long to put this together, I made the cards inside the box identical to the top of the box. Original, no? LOL Well, at least this way, you'll know exactly what's inside.
I just changed the sentiments on the cards, since the cards are versatile for a variety of occasions. (As you can see above)

This is a peek at the drawer that is inside the box. I think this is so neat, to make a box that contains a drawer!

And this picture proves that I made it so you could close the drawer. Thank goodness for great instructions! LOL
So there you have it! What do you think? Drop me a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great weekend!
