Just Magnolia GDT- Exploding Box


Hi dear blogging mates! I'm back with one of my dearest projects: an exploding box. This is my last week as GDT for Just Magnolia; I had a great time designing along with some of the most talented ladies out there and I thought I'd make something special as my final project. So I went for an exploding gift box, not having some particular recipient in mind this time. So the sentiment is rather chosen at random, I might have to replace it given the opportunity. Or I might just go on and perhaps sell it as it is.
The challenge theme over at Just Magnolia is BINGO!!! I really used most of the options there...he, he. So, here;s my box-  I've taken lots of pictures- click on them for a closer look if interested in details.



And some close-ups:





Recipe:
Papers: Blushbutter- digital
Coloring medium: Promarkers and copics, DI
Embellishments: Flowers, metal butterfly, gold padded small butterflies, leaves and pearls, ribbon- all from Wild Orchid Crafts, lace from stash, charm from Bunny Zoe, tassel from Joanna Sheen, gems from stash.
Dies: nestabilities (classic circle, ovals, scalopped ovals, label 6), Cherry Lynn doily, Magnolia flower die.
Sentiments: computer generated
Size: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, height- 4 inches.

Challenges:
Magnolia Down Under- Butterflies
Magnolia-licious- Inspiration pic
Magnolia Stamp Lovers- Flowers 
Charisma Cardz - Glitter It 
Delightful Challenges -Must Use Digital Paper 
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Anything but a card 
 Dutch Magnolia Lovers - BINGO* 
One Stitch At A TimeBling
Thanks for being here today! Let me know if you like my box; your comments make my day! 
A big hug to all of you and enjoy your weekend!
