purple & green box

Woah! What a week this has been! Am crawling on my hands and knees to Friday and looking forward to the weekend. It has been so hectic and only four days long!

At least I managed to get my entry made for this week's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity although it has taken me all week to make it! The challenge this week is a purple and green colour challenge.

For this I made a box, but because my crafting time has been so sporadic, I kind of lost my mojo midway and couldn't work out how to decorate it. Also I don't think purple and green are my colours, so this certainly was a challenge for me.

Apologies for the awful photos. What can I say, when it rains it pours and it does so every day at the moment.

Here is the top, sorry for the reflection below, but it shows the depth, although this kind of photo would cause me a migraine, so I hope to change it come the weekend! 

I made a water distressed tag and then added La Blanche ~ Clock Collage stamp. I then diecut some borders and applied a couple of layers of UTEE.

For the top, I added some paper flowers, a Tim Holtz keyhole and a Prima dangly trinket. Just needs a photo added under the dome.

All papers and brads used are Basic Grey ~ Eva 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 papers. How ancient are these?

Front of boxes, looking a bit busy for my liking.

The drawers.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
