Inky Impressions Challenge

Hello, it time for a new challenge over at Inky Impressions & this challenge is 
'Use Lace or Trim'

The sponsor this week is 3 Bugs in a Rug.

So I got to thinking about what I could make with lace & a Exploding Box card with a mini easel card on top came to mind. Yes another exploding box card. What can I say I just love making them.
 For this box I use Princess Lili from Inky Impressions

I have used Black, white & purple for this box. For the background behind Lili, I have used a embossing folder that just happen to match my paper. Once the pattern was on the paper I then ink it up using black ink. 

I have used purple flowers & added some purple stickles to them. Love the purple on purple look. I added a bow with a heart charm & brad (from Inky Impressions).

For the centre of the box I have used a die cut flower & added some white lace. I have placed some butterflies on plastic strips all the way around the flowers. So butterflies look like their floating.

On each flap I have placed a tag with a bow & rose then added a sentiment from Inky Impressions.

Underneath I have placed another area so you have more room for writing or a photo. 

For this box it has taken me about 3 to 4 hours to complete. 

Don't forget to pop over now to Inky Impressions & check out the challenge & what the rest of team have created.

This Box will be entered into the following challenges:

All the best
