18th Exploding Box Card

Hi crafters

Just a quickie as I am off to bed now as I am off to Stamperama in Stevenage tomorrow so need to be up early.  I didn't get to the April one or the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show what with Brian having had his stroke at the end of the year, so am really looking forward to it.

I did this exploding box for a friends daughter for her 18th and have since had 3 more commisions for them.  I used the same papers that I used a few weeks back for my Mum's birthday card as I really love them (Nitwits Collection).  I added a musical candle to the birthday cake that plays the tune of Happy Birthday which went down a storm.

Well nighty night but thanks for stopping by and I hope to be back soon.  In the meantime I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Pixie Cottage - Say it with Flowers
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Gifts
Allsorts Challenge - Anything but a Card
Crafts and Me - Make it Count
Sir Stampalot - Whatever you fancy
