Pink & cute for a christening

I had an order for a Christening card but for something more 'cute & pink' rather than traditional.  I wasn't sure what to use at first, and then I remembered this little LOTV cutie and thought it might be ok...


And a matching box... can you see the little notch cut out of the side?  I did that with the Stampin' Up 'word window' punch, love that punch :o)


Card and box together...


I've coloured the image with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  Papers are K&Co, with core'dinations cardstock.  Swirly corners cut with a sizzix die, border cut with MS punch.  Flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid and some smaller ones from my stash, sprayed with a bit of 'spray & sparkle', ribbon & pearls from stash.  Lettering on the box was cut on the Cricut.

Not sure about the flowers - are they a bit much?  I'm not used to using so many roses, but I thought seen as I'd been asked for a boxed card I might as well use some big flowers.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

This is breathtakingly sweet. I love it all, so don't need to go into detail, lol. I'm with you; if your card gets a box, it gets the 3D max treatment...and as the flowers are a perfect match, they're perfect too....love the box too by the way (oh, no more details!) Dee
