India Style Box Card

This is my favorite Box Card yet! It is my version of India Style and inspired by Elaine at Magic Boxes, you have to check out her version (the original) it is beautiful. This took me two days to complete but I just love how it turned out, so it was worth every minute. It was a piece commissioned as a birthday card/gift for a very unique girl that loves tattoos and is embarking on a new beginning in life. The gold embossed medallions and images remind me of Henna tattoos. The butterfly’s represent the rebirth or new beginning and the India Style windows I made on here remind me of a Magical Genie’s bottle.
