The Wonder of Life

I'm a bit late with this post, I've not been able to sit at this PC easily after a little accident I had the other week. Painkillers taken and sitting for a while :-)

Anyway enough of my problems, and on to the challenge set at Delicious Doodles Challenges this week.

The theme as you might have guessed from the title is
The Wonder of Life

There is definitely a spring feel in the air, new life is emerging on the farms and in the hedgerows.
So, it could be new life, old life, re-emerging life, as long as it is based on LIFE we don't mind what you create!!

I made a box for some Easter goodies to go in. Easter is that time when, traditionally, we celebrate the new life of Jesus after rising from the dead. I am not a religious person, Easter is also known as the Spring holidays and Spring is all about the world coming back to life after the Winter "Mini Death". Hence easter eggs, new chicks etc have become the accepted symbols. I am rambling here aren't I. I'll just show you some pics of my box.

I used the images Butterfly Bliss

some glossy accents on the flower centre and the butterflies are layered for extra dimension after heat embossing with clear with gold glitter powder.

and Daisies and Butterflies

The butterflies here are also heat embossed with the same gold glittered clear powder

The other sides

The pearls, ribbon and daisies from stash. The whole box was made from one sheet of A3 card stock.
