Another exploding box !!

Hi all
I am really loving making these exploding boxes ...they make a nice change from cards .Here is the latest one I have made using pretty die cuts to embellish it .the card I used for the body of the box  was different colours on each side so gives a little contrast when the box is opened I have hoarded this card for a year !!!. I used the following dies etc ...scalloped spellbinders, a cheery lynn heart set ,sissix sizzlits butterflies die from SU. A free tag die from a mag .a SU bow die and basket weave embossing folder  from sizzix. A tonic edge punch .The  gold satin edge ribbon gems are from meiflower crafts.
