Challenge #35 at Michelle perkett Studios

                                                                                                                                                                          Well back for another exciting challenge...
We were to use  punches (any kind, MS,
Spellbinders etc) and some sort of fussy cutting be it the image or cut a flower or design out of DP.

This is what I wanted to try.....An Explosion box!!! Its a card and gift in one, I haven't put an sentiment on it yet ....haven't decide what I want to use. There are many tutorials on YouTube on how to make these boxes.
I made my box bigger  then in the tutorials so that I could accommodate my  image.....All the flowers were from punches I have, (MS,EK,Sizzix)....This was so much fun to make and it really wasn't hard at all....after all the cutting I just had to assemble..
Paper: Core'dinations,white card stock.vellum,assorted DP
Punches:( MS hydrangeas, hydrangea's boarder, daisy boarder),(Daisy chain boarder,Sm and Med retro    flower all EK )

 Hope you enjoy !!
Hugs Jean
