Happy Easter !

The challenge project I uploaded earlier really wasn't me, the colours are too bright and I think the topper is just too fussy.  Therefore I wanted to load another project I have been working on for Easter,
 Easter eggs are very expensive over here with a £1 egg in the U.K. going for over €5 in Spain.

I bought a simple €3 egg and decided to create the box for it myself, here goes.

The box is made from acetate the exact size of the Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight die in silver Mirri card.  This was mounted onto the box with the oval cut out.  

This provided a perfect window which I decorated with the Spellbinders Papillion 2 butterfly die,  Don't they look gorgeous cut in silver.

The top of the box has corners made from the corner pieces from the same die, silver ribbon and more butterflies.  I hope my mum likes it although as she is on a shopping trip to the U.K. at the moment staying with my partner I may eat it before they get back.  I'll be back with my first ever Design Team project for Lady Anne's cards.  Enjoy...
