  2. Oooo! Pwetty box there Mrs A. Though not quite as pretty as the one you made me with chikkins on. In fact, I used another one of the contents on the weekend!!! Shock!! Horror!!

  3. Very pretty! That is quite a fantastic flower on top of it. I love the soft colors you used.

  4. Stunning, superb flower and love the box, fabulous colours.

    You have no idea how much torment you are putting me through, all these crafters entering your Butterfly challenge, I am surrounded by them. lol. But I am so glad that it has gone down well for you.

  6. Oh my goodness, Mrs. A - this box IS classic elegance! The papers, the embellishments, the beautiful rose and that butterfly...oooohh, the butterfly...GORGEOUS x awesome! Love this! Hugs~c (oh yes, the sequins....I'm terrible with using them, because I'm never sure where they 'ought' to go! The 'queen of sequins' is Kim, over at Joyfully Creating with Kim...she sure knows where to place her little sparklies for maximum impact. I just fudge it!!)

  7. This little trinket box is lovely. I adore boxes to put things into. Creative Bliss Dear...

  8. What a beautiful little box. I am ashamed to admit i have never made a box...let alone one so pretty!

  17. Your box is beautiful Mrs A - the rose exquisite. It's a gift in itself, love it!

    Funny you should say I could have used faux leather for my camera card as I've been totally addicted to that technique ever since seeing Sheena's video - just finishing off some little book covers at the moment .... great minds think alike! xx

  18. This is awesome! I LOVE those pink flowers on the neutral box! (BTW, I think elves are probably much harder to sew than clothes. I'm not going to try them to find out though!)
