Butterfly Dream Box

'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!
