I was inspired by the blue and gold and the dots.
I decided to make something a bit different this month - a box. 
I made my box from black cardstock. I cut 2 pieces - 15cm x 18cm (top) and 17cm x 20cm (Bottom). Then scored 3 cm from each edge on the top panel and 4cm from each edge on the bottom panel.  Folded along the score lines and cut one slit in each corner. I then decorated my lid before assembling the box.
For the decoration I used my Bo Bunny Love stencil and an assortment of texture pastes. The blue butterfly is created using Imagine Crafts Creative Medium Iridescent Blue. The paste looks white but when you place it on black cardstock it dries this lovely blue. I used the Bo Bunny Pearl Pen to create the dots around the edge.

A couple of close ups:

Hope this inspires you to have a go at the challenge.
