Another Secret Box

I finally finished the secret box that I was working on for my tutorial.  See my precious posting below or click HERE if you're interested.  You can make this for any occasion and fill it with other goodies, but I made this one to fill with Easter eggs.  

front view

rear view

So.....I don't actually have much to say here except to show you more pictures...LOL. Here are frontal views of the different panels...

Hmm...I don't really like the way I colour her outfit in purple.  I think she would look better in a more softer colour--must try again.  Anyway this is Tilda with Floating Hearts from Magnolia's new Princes & Princesses Collection 2012.

This Tilda with Hollebores is from the previous collection Sweet Christmas Collection 2011. 

This is another image from the Princes & Princesses Collection 2012.  She is called Sweet Princess Tilda.

All these Magnolia images and many more are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store. She has a fabulous inventory of the full-size as well as the mini stamps.  Also don't overlook the selections of dies and other crafting tools.   

Of course, what would I do without flowers...LOL.  They are one of my favorite types of embellishments.  This same floral arrangement is on the 2 sides of the box that don't have a Tilda on it.

Challenges that I can enter this project into:
Totally Tilda Challenge #43 - Tilda holding a flower/bunch of flowers
Paper Sundaes Challenge #114 - Easter
