Magical Monday's 'Back to Nature' Challenge DT Card

Good Morning Bloggers!
It's time again for another challenge over at Magaical Mondays this time we're getting 'Back to Nature' so think leaves, trees, flowers etc. We are very lucky to be sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts so make sure you join us!

I decided to make a gift box using the gorgeous 'Indian Summer' DP's from Basic Grey which I distressed with Walnut Stain and then added faux stitching to. The sketch came from Friday Sketchers and was a joy to use. Obviously I went for an autumnally feel so I embellished with twiggy brances and punched leaves. The large flower is by Papermania and was coloured with ProMarkers. This beautiful image from Sweet Pea was coloured with ProMarkers and distressed with Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress Ink. The whole box has been sprayed with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and to add extra sparkle the wings and rose have been seriously Stickled!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Friday Sketchers - #122 'Sketch'
Simon Says - It's Autumn'
