My Exploding Box Challenge - Box No.4

Box no.4 complete and I am getting a bit bored now! LOL
The other day I painstakingly cut a strip of tulle, gathered and stitched it to bulk out and add depth 
to a little flower. I used this trial on the top of this box but when I wanted to repeat the effect of the 
tulle inside the box I decided to be lazy and I just threaded the stem of the flower through the tulle 
and cut around it very roughly.

My darling hubby is popping into Hobbycraft today to, hopefully, pick me up another pack of card. I have got quite a few sheets of 12x12 card stock but all mishmash colours. I have asked for either a pack of black or white, so fingers crossed, even making a few on black card stock will give me a bit of a change.

I am still feeling rotten, it has been raining all day, some half term this is turning out! The highlight of my day has been watching the birds in the garden as we filled up the bird feeder yesterday. It was quite amusing watching the seagulls, blackbirds and magpies and their fisticuffs over a bit of stale bread and some seed!

To cheer myself up I have promised to make time and place myself a Stampin Up order tonight, my only issue is that I can never decide what to get!

Stampin UpMaterials used include; Designer Series paper in Pretty in Pink, Pearl Basic Jewels, You are loved Stamp Set, Papillon Potpourri Butterfly Stamps set, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Decorative Label Punch.
