what an explosion!!!

my friend asked me to make an exploding box for her mum with autumn colours
I have used all the flowers from flower pack at  Daisy Doodles store - plus there are loads more in the set I haven't used yet - watch this space!!!
I printed them all onto different coloured card and layered them, then added gems and in the centre box is hand made spotty paper and on the top too, but the bottom now has a verse on it too - finally there will be a cupcake inside it but not until its sent
the flowers on the top again were printed from the pack and then shaped before layering
finally the card around the edge has been shaped with a martha stewart punch and some gold shiny ribbon added to finish off

I am going to enter my exploding box in the challenges at
creative inspirations - halloween/fall
lexis creations - birthdays
craft your passion - glitter and sparkles
papertake weekly - shiny and bright
a spoonful of sugar - lets get punchy
stamp challenges - fun with digis

and that my dears is that!!
hope you like it xx
