anniversary explosion


In August it was my 21st wedding anniversary which is traditionally celebrated with brass so I chose to use this as one of the colours for my card to my husband. I decided to make an exploding box as I couldn't remember ever making one so thought I would give it a try.                             I decorated the outside of the box with ribbons and a hand tied double bow (which my hubby did try to un-do to get into the box... he still needs some training and educating obviously).
The inside of the box I decorated with the same papers and this cute image from LOTV which I coloured with promarkers.


I added some punched flowers and leaves which I attached to acetate strips and for that bit of extra sparkle I added diamante gems to the flower centres. A couple of die cut ovals gave me a place to write and a peel-off sentiment to finish off. 


My hubby was suitably impressed so to me that was all that mattered.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

bloggers challenge-wedding/anniversary
glitter n sparkle- anything with a b (brass, butterflies,box and bow)
polkadoodles-anything but a square
The shabby tea room-3D or shaped card
Bizzy Becs-anything goes
