What no Card???

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you all from Las Vegas - actually I am scheduling this whilst I am sat in Blackpool before I go lol!  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme this fortnight is Anything But A Card!  These challenges always throw me into a panic but I do like to use them to try something I have never done before.  I have made a box in a different shape so here it is:


An Octagonal Box made following a tutorial here.  Here is another view:


and a peek at the lid:


The papers are digi - sorry I didn't write any details down and I can't remember! The butterfly is Cheery Lynn I think the flourish must be Marianne as it is pale blue.  All the flowers are Wild Orchid except the pink one which I made using SB Rose Creations. Pearls and Ribbon from my stash.

We are being sponsored this week by Fairy Dust Crafts


so please pop over to Lexi's Creations to see what the rest of the super DT have done!! Thanks for looking today and take care xx
