Penny Black card box



The challenge at penny Black and More http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ for the month of December is Happy Birthday and this is my DT box card for that challenge. This little box is for my granddaughter and I am sure she will love all the characters and the sparkle.
I cut, folded, inked edges and assembled my box. I layered and stamped flourishes on my papers. I added some lace around the inside edge of the box as the picture shows. I cut and curled my roses and added my embellishments.  I used a Penny Black stamps "sweet thing", "easy rider" and "Mimi and friend". I stamped "sweet thing" several times to use the cupcakes and icing for layering.  All the images were coloured with Aquamarkers and glittered with stickles. To finish it off I added heart gems on top of the cakes.
I must admit this was one of those projects where everything goes wrong with it. Glue went where it was not wanted, my colouring was not up to par. I re-assembled the roses about 5 times before they were the correct size and at this stage was ready to throw it away ans start again.  This was very time consuming and I was glad when it was finished. I did notice too, that one of the hearts had slipped out of place. I am sure I can take it off and replace it correctly before giving it to my granddaughter.
I have entered it into a few challenges listed below.
