Gold Soiree Card In The Box

I had a very special friend's birthday to attend. Sharon is celebrating being Cancer Free! She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer in December and now 10 months later the cancer is gone.
Amazing, Amazing!
So the card had to be super special. I chose a Card In The Box design because nothing says "Celebration" like a bunch of things popping out of a card - don't you think.

 I used Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Paper on the sides. The Box is made from a 15cm x full length of A4 card stock in Pistachio Pudding.

The flowers are from Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamps and matching punches, in Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.
Leaves are in Pistachio Pudding from the Bird Builder Punch and Garden Green using the Retired Secret Garden Framelit.
I popped some butterflies and words up on strips of acetate.

Happy Birthday is from Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and You're the Best from Just Sayin Stamp set.
and Make a Wish from Chalk Talk Stamp Set.
Here is a side view for you.
and a folded flat image.
