Fabulous Foxglove Boxed Book Card

Hello and Happy Day to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.  It's a quick post from me today which I have Scheduled and I hope is published.  
Today my husband and I are celebrating our 36th Wedding Anniversary and its also my younger daughters birthday, so I am off doing celebratory things.   My card for today's post for Fashionista Challenge # 4 -features the fabulous image  Foxglove from Crafts and Me.  

"Winged Things"
is our challenge theme...
Thats Fairies, Angels, Dragons, Bee's, Butterflies, Birds and so much more!

There is also a prize for the voting winner.  Many congratulations to the winner of the last Challenge Coops and to the Top 5 and the featured artists. We also welcome 4 new Design Team members this month.  Please visit their blogs and make them welcome.

 I have made this card as a box book card.  This is a style that I have used before and there are lots of tutorials available.  It would be possible to use this card to present a small gift in the book section.

The butterflies are embossed on vellum and have been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and decorated using Glue Pen and Glitter and pearls.  
Flower ribbon is from my stash as are the flowers, feather and leaves used.
I have made a Die cut tag reading Make a wish using an Inkylicious Stamp which I have glittered and distressed with Ink.  Seam Binding ribbon has been used and further flowers from my stash.
