Now On to our hop! I am up first, and I am so excited to share
my project with you. Don't forget to hop along to the other designers blogs and comment, the full list for the designers, including the links are listed at the bottom of my post.

I have altered a wooden box which was a, thrift store find, using some of the GORGEOUS Flutter paper by Graphic 45.  I just adore this paper, the colours are so rich and vibrant!

I also used the butterfly flourish chipboard, and embossed it using some black embossing powder to make a bold statement on the front of the box.

I added some Prima and Recollections flowers to the box, and fussy cut out lots of the butterflies from the paper so the flowers give them a fun place to land on.

Some of the Dovecraft glitter glue in crystal gives the butterflies a gorgeous shimmer and sparkle.

My focal point is the steampunk butterfly chipboard piece which I layered on one of the chipboard words "Dream" on top. 

I used the Finnabar pastes in coordinating colours on the top of the butterfly and then used some DecoArt rose gold metallic lustre on top of the pastes.  The dream word I used the same black embossing powder to make it stand out on the butterfly.  A finishing touch to the butterfly is some Prima hardware, which I attached using Glossy Accents.

Such pretty flowers and butterflies!
The tulle lace on the box was from my stash but the double scallop floral lace I layered on top of that is from the White Rose Crafts store, they have a great new selection of lace in now!

I also added a pretty bow from the bow lace in the WRC store.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and have found some inspiration here.
