creative challenges

this year part of my creative goal was to start taking part in more challenges to get ye old mojo working and taking me out of my comfort zone.
you can check out the places i have found to find challenges here

was to use the following colours:
and here is my creation!

 i have used an old plastic embellishments (buttons i suspect!) container
and otp'ed it!!! (is that even a phrase??)

i used a variety of circle punches and the xl fancy flower punch to make the flower on the top.
i stamped the large squiggley pattern from the bliss sale-a-bration set over them all with black and razzleberry and sponged the edges with old olive, razzleberry and crumb cake.
right plonk in the middle i have added a old olive rhinestone brad
 i added some pretty black 1/8" taffeta ribbon and a couple of pearls, diamantes and a button.

 on the side i added a couple of tiny tags tied on with a fine piece of linen thread.

now here's the tricky bit...

what do i use it for? what should go inside? 
any ideas?

cheers ears

Really pretty Clare. Good thinking - perhaps it can hold some other small embellisments you have lying around.

What a gorgeous transformation from a humble button holder.

Gorgeous, I think I would keep it as a button box only it's now much more beautiful, lol.
