Birthday Wishes Card and Box Set

Happy Thursday...today I'd like to share with you a card and box that I made using my Pazzles machine. I got the file (cutesy cover) from My Time Made Easy. It was a free download file and I just did a download for my Pazzles (WPC file). There were other options to use for other machines and even a PDF file so you could print this off and just use your scissors. I resized this to fit onto a 12X12 piece of paper otherwise it cuts it at 8.5X11. Thank you Lauren for this freebie...but I do have to say between the two of them (the card and box) they just don't flow. I think my problem with them are the flowers. One is a pastel pink and the other is a cherry color...so I'm thinking of removing the pink flower on the card and changing it out to match the other one or just making another card...If you get a chance pop on over to her site and check out the other templates she has. Some very creative ones to play with....The Tilda with violin I received from Diana from the Magnoliacious store. Thank you Diana!!!! Go and check out all of the new collection of stamps that Miss Diana has gotten in. They look so pretty. I want so many of them, but I just can't justify buying some right now. But I do have a birthday, anniversary and even Mother's Day is coming soon....get my hint...lol.... Anywhoo, I want to thank everyone that stopped by yesterday and left me a comment on my Edwin card. Didn't he look dapper sittin in his chair? And many thanks for answering my question about the borderabilities...I got it...you know, the light bulb went off...lol....and I went DUH!!!! LOL...thank you!!!!Thanks for stopping in today and I hope everyone has a lovely day...I do have a couple more scene cards to post soon (still trying to get them finished) and a couple of other cards that I used my dusty materials on, so come back again tomorrow, I'll post more....Enjoy!!!!! see what I mean about the flow...it just doesn't work for me....what do you think....seriously...does it flow for you? just a little closer view of the card.... here's the box...the butterflies I cut using the clipart from my Pazzles machine...a little tip: When I put my things together like boxes and such, I don't normally use my regular adhesive. I use what I call wet glue. Aleene's tacky glue. I have foud that this is perfect for this. Once this is dry it makes your project feel like you used cardboard instead of cardstock. Oh and also, I forgot to delete the performation marks before I cut it out (which you really don't have to) and I had to use book binding tape (Making Memories) for added support, so it wouldn't fall apart down the road...did that make any sense? If you click on the photo you can see what I mean by the marks.... open view...I have 2 bottles of 4.5 fl. oz bottles of lotion and body wash with room to spare inside...it turned out pretty tall...I have so many ideas for this....for the closure I used a purse snap closure that I got out of the purse section at Joann's...
Well that's it for today....Hugs from Charm City....

Oh so cute Nancy! Adorable set! don't think I would have thought about the flowers not flowing. the colors all certainly "go". there's both light pink and darker in the paper. Maye it bothers you because the type of flower is different. I think it's beautiful! BTW, I was wondering about your scene card. I tried to make one like that awhile back and wondered if the base was one piece, or several? Would love to try one. xxxD

Isn't that funny that the 2 different flowers don't match? They should cuz it looks like you have both colors in the paper but....I have to agree with you. Go with the red flower. I love the little trail you made with gems behind the butterflies. And am SO looking forward to you scene cards. Love them!
