Box Of Flowers

A birthday card for my sister which she received yesterday so I can safely post it here now.  It was originally a prototype to see if I could actually manage making one of these box cards, but it took soooo long that she ended up with this one.  She loves it so that's the main thing even though I made a mistake with one of the inner strip bits and the matting isn't perfect  :  )



Cardstock - Marine Blue Quill Board, snippets of various greens, blues, pinks and white
Paper - Crafters Choice Garden
Dies - Stampin' Up Botanical Builder
Tools - Sizix Big Shot, score board
Adhesives - ds tape, score tape, Cosmic Shimmer glue
Other - sentiment sticker, Say It In Crystals pink and blue bling flower centres
