Spring's Promise ~ Scraps of Elegance ~ Feature

I am spotlighted this month at Scraps of Elegance. Here is their blog.

What a beautiful kit this month. I'm so excited. I altered a box for the first time. I love my little box.  It's a token I took home from a previous second job.. it's a cigarillo box. hahah  I used the Graphic 45 Secret Garden papers that came in this month's kit. Cathi O'Neil's white butterfly fits on top so beautifully.  I used a bit of my Prima flowers, Webster's Pages resin and some 3rd Eye's butterfly stamps. I stamped my butterflies on Delicate Aster by Heartfelt Creations. Here is the finished product with side views. :
