Tuesday Trigger Challenge - Pastels

I mentioned in my last post that I recently had a stamping night with some friends, well, this was my creation of the night...and it took me all night! I had about five different attempts at the box, but in the end, I was happy with the result. Anyway, my card and box were perfect for the "Pastels" challenge over at Moxie Fab World:I have used perfect plum, pale plum and white coupled with certainly celery, which is definitely one of my favourite colour combos. That fabulous box template is from the very, very talented Donna at Butternut Sage designs. Here is a closer look at my card:
I have used inspired by nature, butterfly prints, baroque motifs and the en francais background stamp. I love the way we can co-ordinate our sets so effortlessly. Here is a closer look at the top of the box:
So, as you can see, this was a timely project with loads of cutting, heat & dry embossing, sponging etc. A little time was saved with that new butterfly punch in the new mini, which is just fabulous!

I know what you mean about fussing with projects until they come out just right. But rest assured, this is beautiful.
