Tealight box + easel card

One of my goals for this year is to make more CAS cards, but also to create other things besides cards. So when I wanted to create a little something for a friend who's birthday it was last week, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to make a tealight box. This project also allowed me to start using my new butterfly die.

I used the Boxer (Crafter's Companion) to create a box and a lid from Neenah solar white cardstock and glued the back strips together after I had finished decorating everything. I created an easel card, which I adhered on top of the box and I die cut an extra scalloped square to adhere to the bottom of the box.

Materials used:
Cardstock - Neenah solar white for the box, Core'dinations for the card and bottom
Papers - BasicGrey (marjoleine collection)
Sentiment - TLC Creations (Cupcakes equal love word art set)
Scalloped square die - Lifestyle Crafts
Butterfly die - Die'sire/Crafter's Companion
Gems - Papermania

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe - Anything goes
Crafter's Companion - Anything but a card
Dutch Dare - 201 Winged things
Simply Create Too - 29 Anything goes
BasicGrey - 85 New beginnings/Sth. new
