SSDS - Anything but a Card

This week at Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturdays we challenge you to make anything but a card. Our sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique, and they were kind enough to give the DT some fabulous images to work with.
 The Stamping Boutique is also going to award 5 digi images of the lucky winner's choice. Please come on over to SSDS and see the fabulous creations the other DT members have created.
My image from The Stamping Boutique is entitled "Help from a Friend." I'm a cardmaker and scrapbooker so this was a true challenge for me and made me think totally outside of the box, no pun intended. Yes, I could have made a scrapbook page, but I really did want to challenge myself. I started with a small cardboard box that was just in my junk and painted it with silver and purple acrylic paints. I then stamped the top of my box with a Friends stamp. Next I colored my image and then Modge Podged it on to the top of the box. It will never come off...lol.. I then colored and cut out four of the butterflies and Modge Podged them on each side of the box. Finally I made a matching tag using the same procedures.
I hope you like my attempts at something other than a card. I am going to also enter it into the following challenges:
Alphabet Challenge - butterflies
Stamp with Fun - friends
Tuesday Taggers and Prairie Fairy- recyle (cardboard box)
Flutter by Wednesday - open with butterfly
Tellen's Place - multiple buterflies
Stampin' Royalty - anything but a card
Crafty Ann's - anything goes
Townscrappers - pink and purple
Etsy Inspired - Butterfly Garden Girl - Lindsay Brakeen
Lots to Do - friends/friendship
