Make it Crafty Advent, Day 16! (My Day #5:)...

saturated canary digis 

The MiC girls are doing this fun, grown-up, crafty advent calendar this month!  Each day they reveal a sneak peek of a project, and you can click the link to open that day's door.  I am behind day 16 door:). 

This is my project...I used the Mini Book Style Box Kit and the Delicate Butterflies Chipboard.  The book is so fun to decorate; I am going to use it for Niamh's teacher's Christmas present.  My favorite parts are the sparkly butterflies, though:)...I love all the delicate swirls in the wings!

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
