Goin for the grunge!

The keepsake box isn't new...but the butterfly stamp is. I wanted a really dimensional piece and grungeboard was the perfect choice.

Here's the inside, which shows Maya Road's new chipboard butterfly, that is a perfect fit for the butterfly stamp. Didn't use it though...I'm loving the calendar stamp as a background....AGAIN!

Here's a closer look...

The knob & the metal trim are made by 7 gypsies...both are totally COOL! I used up some scraps of the K & Co paper that were left from another project.
I'll be back tomorrow with the contest details and some info on classes in Bloomington Illinois, St. Louis Missouri and Rockford, Illinois. Yep...March is REALLY busy. I LOVE IT!
