Hi all, today I have a gift box to show you that I made at 2.30am this morning, Jess was unable to settle so I decided to get up and have a go at making a box, it took me over 2 hours but by 5.00am I had finished the box and lid with the papers all measured and stuck down, I got an hours kip then started on the rest of the decor which has taken me most of the day.
I had already crocheted two of the pink 'May Roses' so I crocheted a third one plus two leaves, I decided to add the display on the top of the box adhered to a doily, I also added some gold Viva Decor.
My second picture shows the top of the box looking down on the roses 
My 3rd picture shows the yellow flowers that I crocheted a couple of nights ago, I did use a rose for the centre and added a punched butterfly. 
My 4th picture shows one of my beloved Tilda images coloured with Spectrum Noirs, I distressed the edge of the oval with TH ink. 
The 5th picture shows another of my Tilda images this time coloured with Copics. 
My final picture shows a stamped butterfly that I got many years ago and is wood mounted, for the first time ever i used flitter glue and gilding flakes, my nails also turned out quite nice as well, lol. 
Well that is the end of the pictures, it has been quite dull here today so I hope that you can see the detail of what I have done with my box.
I would like to enter my box into the following challenges:
I hope that you have enjoyed your visit and like my box, i would like to thank everyone for leaving me such wonderful comments, I really do appreciate each and everyone.

What a pretty little box Lorraine and those crocheted flowers make beautiful embellishments.

I find I do some of my best crafting in the early unearthly hours, I've done quite a bit of that the last couple weeks because of my little issue that's been going on.

Trouble is I'm shattered by lunchtime sure you must be as well.
