Pretty packaging for two challenges SCSC & Charismacards

Hi everyone,
It sure is hot here but we do have a bit of a breeze today, it did try to rain yesterday :0(
but Matthew was having none of it he was doing what he calls his sun dance he was'nt going to let it rain on his birthday :0)
How are you all hope your not getting overheated although i was at times yesterday but we had a great day and Matthew thoroughly enjoyed it.
On to my project i did last night and this is it:
This is for Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge 38#
which is pretty packaging.
I am also entering this into Charisma cards Challenge 25#
which this week is anything you want and you can enter up to four times. I made this box for my grandaughter as its her birthday 25th july (the day before mine)
as she has quite an unusual name it is impossible to find things with her name on she always looks at the things in shops with names to see if she can find hers but never does, so i know she will be so pleased with it and i will make her a card to match this too.
The box is called all in one box designed by Monica Gale for one of the Stamp With Us online classes and was very easy to do.
I used cardstock from stash papers are DCWV Sweet Stack
I coloured Tilda with promarkers and used sukura glitter pen for her wings, cut her out and popped her onto a scallop circle which i mounted with foam pads.
I also cut some flowers from the sweet stack papers and popped those on with foam pads to give it a 3d effect.
Oh yes and i will fill this with goodies for her birthday :0)
Thank you for taking the time to look and i hope you like it:)
Dashing off again big hugzz to all of you Val xxx
