Colour Combo - The Crafty Pad

As it it Palm Sunday today the colour combo at The Crafty Pad is Yellow, Green and Orange. I decided for a change from a card to make this Easter plant holder gift box and I put a yellow Primula inside. The butterfly is by Debbie at The Crafty Pad and comes in digi images and clear stamp sets, I coloured the butterfly with Copics, sprayed with gold spray and layered and added some wire for the antenna, the large layers are on the front and the small one on the back. I added flowers with brads from my stash on the two sides and branches cut with a L-em punch, the papers were from my stash and I used Martha Stewart's lattice arch punch around the top and finished with a ribbon. Check out The Crafty Pad for some lovely new stamps. I am also entering this for the following challenges:

  2. This is fabulous Pat and such a lovely idea. The MS lattice punch is perfect for this project too.
