Exploding Box - Scottish Butterflies

Sorry - where did this last month go!!***? I seem to have been very busy but not a lot to show for it.
Anyways - here's my latest box:
I was asked to make a magic box - butterflies with a Scottish 'twist'.

CLICK ON IMAGES FOR A CLOSER VIEW
I decided to incorporate the Scottish national flower - thistle.

Outside panels.Closer detail of the butterflies and thistle panels.


Will be adding more details shortly.....


Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments - they mean a lot!
