Fussy and Fancy Challenge #117 "Summer"

Good Friday morning all!!

It's time once again for a new Fussy and Fancy Challenge...this one is SOOO EASY!!  We are celebrating "Summer" and we have the WONDERFUL Crafty Sentiments as our sponsor!!!  Fussy and Fancy has such a diverse and WONDERFUL range of creative palette that I'm sure you will find something that tickles your "Fancy" check out my teamie's a visit to their wonderful blogs...then get busy and DAZZLE us all with your talent!!!

I have been wanting to do one of the "Card in a Box" projects for so long but just never got around to it...the very easy tutorial can be found HERE!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view and slide show...
I used the Crafty Sentiments "Lady Bird and Butterfly" digi...
the DP is some left overs from my stash (I used the front and back patterns from the same paper) so not sure what it was...

 a closer view of the outside...
 closer view of "Lady Bird and Butterfly"...
I didn't add a sentiment...I will do this when I send it out to it's recipient...
 the reverse side of the paper decorated with chiffon ribbon, zipper charm (Frantaged of course), rose and lady bug pop up sticker...

I couldn't believe how quickly this SWEET little box came together...a MUST for something quick but so very APPEALING when you want something a little on the different side!!  And you can decorate it as much or as little a you want depending on whether you're mailing or hand delivering!!!

Materials Used:
Digital Stamp-Crafty Sentiments "Lady Bird and Butterfly"
Die Cut-Spellbinder's Classic Ovals Large and Grand Calibur Butterflies
Punch-Marvy Mini Butterfly
Frantage and zipper charm-Live and Love Crafts
Flowers-Wild Orchid Crafts
