Boxing clever

Good morning peeps,
I trust you are all well. It's Thursday again and honestly I just don't know where the time goes when I am on holiday! I have been doing a lot of crafting - trying to get a head start on my Christmas cards this year so I'm not rushing at the last minute like last year.
Today over at CRAFT  we have a new challenge.  
We would like you to make a box
Our amazing sponsors this week are 

For my box I chose a pre coloured digi from Scrapper's Delight. They have some gorgeous stamps both pre coloured and outline images. If you are unfamiliar with this site you really should pop over and take a look.

I wanted to make a fairly large box to hold some things for a Christmas present and the person I have in mind to give it to loves traditional Victorian style Christmas things.

The papers are from Stamping all day and Raspberry Road designs

The lace is from Hobby Craft
The poinsetta , leaves and corners were cut using a Marianne Creatables die.
The gold card is from my stash and I've had it so long I can't remember when I bought it!
The base and lid are cut using Go Kreate XXL dies.

It took an age to make because I had to keep leaving it to do other things - I hate doing that  I would much rather keep going on a project.

I hope you like it.
I am entering this into the following challenges 
Make it Monday Anything Goes 
Challenge up your life - Anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy Anything goes

Have a fab Thursday - off to clean the house now.
