Marianne Design Divas - "New" Beginings or New Stash

"In with the New" or "New Beginnings".  Interpret this challenge whichever way you please;- new stash, new baby, new house etc - that's the call from this month's new challenge from Marianne Design Divas.  You have a whole month to play along and the only criteria is to use some Marianne Design products.

We are also lucky enough to be sponsored by Cuddly Bunny Crafts and Marianne Design themselves.  So there are two great prizes on offer.

My contribution to the Design Team this month is an A5 card and matching gift box.  I have used new stash as I am lucky enough to have received one of the gorgeous new Craftable Butterfly dies from Marianne - its just stunning particularly on the pearlised card I used.

My image was triple embossed to give a more aged feel and mounted onto greyboard.  Seed beads and gems were added to the butterfly which was also layered.

Close up's of the key embossed with copper metal sheet and close up of the layered stamped flower (Craft Stamper freebie) with seed beads ended to the centre.

Card & Gift Box using Marianne Design Products:-
and the most beautiful new Craftable Butterfly CR1205
Other Marianne Products used:  

Insise the box and the box lid.

I am entering this card and gift box into the following challenges:-
I used my Crafters Companion box making board to construct the gift box
