Birthday Card & Gift Box

Hi everyone!  What a weird day, weather wise, here in West Yorkshire. We've had sun, rain, hail, gale force winds, and now it's very dull and raining.  The forcast for the weekend isn't much better.
Today I've made a birthday card and gift box for the Card Caravan Challenge #6 over at The Hybrid Chick, where the theme this month is Birthday.

I printed designs from the Quirky Twerp - Sugar Blossom collection at the Digichick onto 300gsm cardstock.  I also used peach bassil for my card base, label, box top and butterfly wings. Roses were made using a cut file from the Digichick Boutique.  Butterflies and label are a Silhouette cut file. Box flap was made using a Martha Stewart punch. Ribbon and bling are from my stash, and the happy birthday stamp is by Anna Griffin.
Thank you for stopping by:)
Have a Great Weekend! x
