Upcycled card index box

Hope you are all well, I've had another busy week so far....sanding my dining table top which is just about done now and ready to paint, started sanding the chairs so they can be painted too, started a new card which will hopefully be finished tonight and I upcycled a card index box which was just sat doing nothing. It started off looking like this:

and it's ended up looking like this:

WOC and Magnolia flowers were used along with lace, cheesecloth and ribbon from my stash.
All the panels are machine stitched.

I added a couple of TH chit chat stickers and a resin butterfly from Live and Love Crafts.

I used the gorgeous LOTV image: The flower shop, I love these mice images - so adorable!
The image inspired me to use this colour combo and luckily I had these papers in my stash that matched :)
I altered this index box originally to keep my LOTV stamps in, with dividers to separate them but having looked at the number of stamps I've got I might just put the LOTV animal stamps in this one and decorate some more index boxes for other categories of stamps!

I would love to enter my creation into the following fab challenges:
LOTV monthly challenge - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe - Stitching
The Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by and visiting my blog today, 
hope you enjoy the rest of the week.....
