It's similar to my earlier box (in March) but the background is stamped with ferns.
The stamped panels are mounted onto pearlescent green card.
The third and final mount is black card edged with black, holographic, ultra-fine glitter.
I added small, green acrylic gems to the bodies of the butterflies, three per butterfly.
The butterflies were stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black, embossed in clear embossing powder and coloured with Marvey Le Plume pens.
I stamped and coloured both sides of the butterflies, but only embossed the top surface.
They're highlighted with crystal glitter which gives more impact when the box has just dropped open and the butterflies are 'dancing'.
