Butterflies, Hearts and Valentines.

Some more inspiration for you
for my Butterfly Challenge 
Please see the tutorial post below this one 
to see how the box was made.
As I already had the red card  out for taking the photos for 
the tutorial I decided to make another box lid up 
and went slightly larger than 6" square and used the 
white 6" box lid which became the base for this one.

Butterflies are die cut using SU Beautiful Wings.
Red ones were already in my stash and I cut some more
from an odd scrap of Black card  to compliment.
Oddments of red and black ribbon and red gems in my stash
along with the shiny red heart cut outs and large black heart.
Small white doily in bottom of box also from stash.

And to  finish  Red  Heart chocolates.
