This week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is hosted by the lovely Michelle, who has chosen the following scripture:

 "that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge."  Eph 3:17-19

Michelle has challenged us to make a box or use an image that has a box.  I have chosen to recycle a Muffin container. 

I have used the Spellbinders Vintage Lace Motifs for the top of the box, along with the newly released Blossoms Five Nestabilities and Foliage Shapeabililties.  These Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.
