Friends birthday card with matching box

Afternoon All

My card for today is one I have made for my friend at work who will be 65 on Sunday.

Fizzy moon stamp, papers were free with a magazine and all the rest of the card and ribbons are from my stash.

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves have been cut using a memory box die.

Image has been coloured with promarkers and mounted onto some oval diecuts that have been cut using some nestabilited.

Sentiment is from Craftwork cards and has been mounted on to some circle die cuts.

Box has been handmade and decorated to match the card.

Finished card and box

This card finished up being completely different to what I had in mind to so.  I do think it is amazing how you can have one idea for a card and it turns out completely different but I am really pleased with the overall card.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy Crafting
