Autumn Marci

Hello, here is a Exploding Box Card using Autumn Marci. 

I have made lots of flowers & swirls for this card using the cuttlebug.
I have added some cream lace around the outside.

In each of the flowers I have used a brad from Inky Impressions. I also used some inky drops around Marci.

I have place butterflies on clear plastic strips all the way around the flower in the middle. So when you open it they look like their flying.

Here is a close up of the die cut flowers & swirls I have made.

On the bottom flap I have added a envelope tried up with string.

When you open the envelope you have somewhere to write a a little message.

I added some lace around the big flower in the middle. The flower is a Tim Holtz die. I used a big pearl brad from Kaisercraft for the centre of the flower.

I just love making Exploding Box Cards you have so much room to work with.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

All the best
