LIIU challenge 12 - Easter

Good day everyone

Here is my project for LIIU where the theme is Easter.

I had fun making this little open box (which I found on Splitcoast Stampers) and I made a card to go with it. Notice the circular sentiment? I am now beginning to make my own in Photoshop Elements and will be happy to email this to you if you drop me a link via my email (see side bar).

Supplies used -
200 gm white card
Costco card
DIs scattered straw, frayed burlap, pumice stone, fired brick
Black Stazon
Stamps - B Line Designs - French Correspondence, TH - Artful Flight, Butterfly originally in a set from QVC.
Crafters Workshop template - Mini Birds
Nestabilities die cuts and frame
Beads, ribbon and thread
Glitter and clear embossing powder
