Celebrating Summertime with the Dueling Darlings!

Yay!  It's the 15th of the month and time for another duel with the Dueling Darlings.  This month our hostesses Carol, for the Diva's (my team!) and April, for the Dazzlers chose the theme "Summer".  And to make this a more interesting challenge chose to add to the theme "anything but a card"!
Carol send a kit full of delightful elements.  One of those elements was a die cut from kraft cardstock to make a small box.  Along with the box were gorgeous designer papers, cute images, lots of ribbon, buttons and other embellishments.  Here's my creation:
 Front and left side of box

 Back and right side of box
Top of box

I covered the box with squares of 3 of the dsp patterns in the kit that coordinated som well with the striped ribbon.  I covered each or the edges of the box with the sheer yellow ribbon from the kit.  Colored the cute image from SU "Good ol summer time" with Copic markers.  The tag on top was stamped with an image and sentiment from my SU  stamp set "Tagger's Dozen", embellished with the sparkly butterfly in the kit and attached to the striped ribbon with some baker's twine.  All the embellishements on the sides of the box are from Carol's kit.

This was so much fun to create.  I love the way it turned out.  Thanks for the kit and the challenge, Carol!
