Black & Gold Explosion Box

Hello there,

Am posting an explosion box i made for a sweet couple on occasion of the aiyappa's 70th birthday. Here are the pics,

I have created the flower by joining 2 EK success flower burst punch flowers and added black pearls to the centre. And the chevron strip around the box top is upcycled from my mom s old saree. It matches well right?

To the centre of the box i added my fav spiral flowers and a few leaves. I have left a couple of spaces for the photos. 

The pocket you see here is also upcycled from an old gold cloth. I took the border part to make use of the design n stones.
I loved this explosion box because of the colours n the fact that the finishing is slightly better than the last one. Hoping to improve further. 

bye bye
