Magic Exploding Box Card!

This ones long due :) I made this one for DH's baday last week (7th July ). It took me close to 5 days to complete it, yeah i did like a hour or more a day. I wanted to make it very detailed and had so so many ideas :) I have totally used glossy accents (its my new fav), much distressing, die cuts and patterned papers. And i totally enjoyed how it looked and DH flipped on it :)

Warning: this post is loaded with pics!

I am entering this box in the following Challenges:
Stamping Sisters - Something moves (the butterflies spring out!)
Paper crafting journey - For him
Totally Gorjuss   - All about boys
Trimmies Craft challenge - Butterflies
Fussy and Fancy challenge - Summer (the colours used follow this theme)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations Challenge - Boys to men
CYDA - Fancy Folds
Stamping for the Weekend - Wings and things

A deceiving simple looking box ;)

The magic pours out

Notes for baday boy...

Card for the personal message

Cheers!
