Exploding Box Card

Hola Crafters,

After a long time i have sat down to post something. Life is very busy both on work n personal front. Alot of commitments and too little time! Gosh and then i feel time has flown..... last i knew it was Diwali! :|

Diwali exhibitions were good and i had many requests for many handmade things but thanks to my busy schedule i refused all. But there was this one lady who was very insistent to make the magic exploding box for her brother and sister in laws 2nd anniversary! She had seen this card on my stall which Sid loved to show off to all :P. she wanted all elements as they were- the cake, butterfly, tags replaced by pics for the inner flaps :) Hence i agreed to make it for her after all that coaxing. And also since i haven't participated in challenges for long i decided to follow some as well :)

This card is going to participate in the below challenges :)
ICR 12 -  Dots & Stripes with a Tag!
The Ribbon Challenge - Butterflies
Pan Pastel UK Challenge - Exploding Colours
Sugar creek Hollow - Stripes and Dots
Little Claire Designs - Shaped Cards

Ok now for lotsa pic! Enjoy!
                                                      
I kept the colour combo happy and colourful for a young couple!

This ribbon is from my store - My minds eye :)

Check out the explosion of love!

A close up!


Handmade butterfly with Fiskars stamps coloured with my Tombow Pens and loads of Glossy accents

  
Side panel 1 - Note card for personal message

Side Panel 2 - Tags!! with initials of the couple and cute Pie Lane Kohinoor flowers!

Side Panel 3 - A die cut from Kaiser craft Pina Colada Collection (Available with me) with Pie Lane Stones.


 
Side Panel 4 - Doodlebug Die cuts and Wellies and Bellies Rub-ons (Available with me)


And the Center 3D cake. I used Pie Lane Scallop stickers for the cream decoration!! Love it!

My Fav pic!!! I used my heat gun to ensure the butterflies stay on place!



 I would be MIA again as am off to Udaipur for my best frds wedding and then off to Bangalore between 23-25Th for work!!! See u around!

Love
