'I'm going to keep catching that butterfly in that dream of mine' The Verve.
I have always loved that song - it almost became a mantra for me in the late 90's. I made this box for my sister who is celebrating a significant birthday this month. She is an amazing woman and I love her dearly.
The box was just a plain old wooden recipe box (the large variety) that I found at Goodwill. I stained it using the Tim Holtz distress stains (warm honey and fired brick). I then stamped the butterflies with Staz'on and added the 'dream' label with a metal Tim Holtz frame. I got the idea from a British Stamping magazine, so this is not an original idea.
Oh and the card! I made this using a Nick Bantok stamp that my friend Gloria loaned me. I've been waiting for the right occasion to send this card.
Happy Birthday Sis!
