Fairytale Exploding Box

Evening Peeps,

I'm officially all crafted out. I have spent Sunday and two evenings creating today's exploding box and I really don't think my pictures do this project the justice it deserves. I was so inspired by the Magnoliscious Highlights DT creations and with my Sister's 40th on the horizon, I wanted to create something special. She loves all things disney so the Fairytale collection of Magnolia's is just perfect.

This is the box before it explodes


Here it is open, I have tried to take it so that you can see overhead all the swirls of acetate with butterflies and pearls on.





Here's Tilda looking a bit squashed in my photo, with her diamond tiara and pearl earrings.








You will see here that I have been very kind to my Sister as I don't think she is going to accept that's she's 40 so I have only mentioned it once on the little tag and not in large numbers.

Isn't she pretty.


A close up of her sparkling!


Materials Used:-
Bazill cardstock
Magnolia Papers
Accetate to make the swirls for the butterflies and pearls and also stamped another section with Happy Birthday in Stazon
Martha Stewart frond punch and border punch
Loads of star dust stickles
Computer generated tags
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Everything else from stash

I have entered this into the following challenges:-

A Spoonful of Sugar - Cute and Girly
Tuesday Morning Sketches - Favourite colour combo and Glitter
Sir Stampalot - Blossoms and Butterflies
