Roses for Ruby

Hi everyone, I hope you're all keeping well.

It's time for a new challenge at

This fortnight we'd like to see roses on your creation. Here's my card...

I made this for a friend to give to her mum. The papers are all first edition, Spring Feast and Daydream. The distressing is Tim Holtz Forrest Moss. I stamped the papermania image using versamark and used silver detail embossing powder.

I made the roses using the Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms dies and the same papers as the backing papers. I then added a butterfly made using a Cheery Lynn die and the papers used for the image and it's backing.
 I needed to make a box for this card so I used the dusky pink card I used for the matting on the front to make the lid, adding some of the backing paper and a butterfly. The bottom of the box is plain white. I used a Hougie board to make the box.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
Thank you for visiting. I hope you'll hop over to Ruby's and have a look at the wonderful examples from my talented team mates. 
Hope to see you again soon.
Happy crafting
Helen xx
