Bright and Bountiful Box Card

My sister wanted a vibrant, eclectic box card for her mother-in-law's 60th birthday, here's what I came up with; a box stuffed full of bright, pretty embellishments, that folds flat for the post.
 I made the card base from pink card and covered all the panels with Kate Knight pattered papers.  The sentiment on the front flap is from Craftwork Cards, it just happened to be the perfect colour match.
The embellishments were all die cut with the exception of a paper flower and some number stickers.  The bow, bottle, glass, rose, and diamond were made with Xcut dies, the bird and pink and blue flower were made with Sizzix dies, the rose leaves were made with a Marianne die, the butterfly flourish is a Joanna Sheen die and the bunting was cut with a Joy die.
On the back of the card, I made a pocket for a tag, onto which a birthday message can be written.

  I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Pile It On - #45 - Special Occasion
Craft For The Craic - #10 - Birthday
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - #55 - Anything Goes / Celebration
Tuesday Throwdown - #220 - Shaped Cards
