Shabby tea room Challenge

This is a really quickie post, as i just realised that i hadn't photographed or blogged my creation for this weeks Shabby Tea Room Challenge and the new challenge starts tomorrow!
I was thrilled to find that i made Top 3 over there last week...thankyou :)
This weeks challenge was to use maily white or cream and 1 other subtle colour! I wanted to use a bit of, but as i always distress stuff with vintage photo ink...i wasn't sure if that would then be classed as using 2 other colours???? ...So i chose to leave out the pink...and just go with the ink.
I made a large gift box.I've made quite a few of these before but never one so big. This was made out of a full sheet of A3 card, its roughly 8" tall.
I forgot to photo it open :( The top flaps all open out so as you can put stuff inside.

I need to make another 1 now as i accidently 'bashed it' when i got it out to photograph,and snagged the top right corner and it ripped a little :(

Totally stunning, Shaz! You have created a wonderful box. Is there a tutorial for one of these?

Beautiful gift box Shaz but the word 'box' doesnt seem to do it justice! Need to think of an appropriate word.... gift caddy??!

Sooo pretty!
