Anything but a Card

It's the fifth Sunday in April so over at Come and Get It Challenges we have an Anything but a Card Challenge going on. For this challenge I made this Top Note Box, I used the paper from the Spring Vintage to cover the box, I cut out the butterfly in white and in Baja Breeze, and doubled it up to make it look like it's flying I stamped the butterfly with the Elements of Style set and colored them with Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Pretty in Pink, I used  the Mother of Pearl Technique over the butterfly to give it a nice sheen, added some half pearls onto the butterfly and tied a 5/8 satin ribbon around the box added a tag to the top using the sentiment from On Your Birthday set.
Thanks for Looking.
I would also like to enter this into the
