Ice cream holiday box

My great niece is very excited about her forthcoming holidays and wanted a box to keep her bits and pieces in that she will collect when away. I have used an old washing tablet box and painted it with my lovely new eco paints I then used a crackle stamp and covered the box in wild honey distress ink, I let her chose the things she wanted on the box and she wanted the ice cream cones the we found on the indie art cricut cartridge, she spotted the butterfly on my desk so wanted that on the top, the back has a sand castle on it but it is painted in pink as that is her favourite colour. I found the words once upon a time on another cartridge so we cut that out I then punched the trim and adhered it to the top flap. The cones, words and trim were cut in a pale yellow and inked up with the wild honey ink, when I find my small velcro dots I will fix just inside the lid to hold it shut. She is now one happy bunny but I bet it doesn't last much beyond the holidays but it was fun to do.
Cynthia over on Rainbow Lady's challenge blog wants ice cream or ice cream colours this week so I am entering this for that and also over on the Cricuteers forum they want something cut on the cricut and a pink summer feel so I am going to enter this into that challenge as well.
