Commissioned Birthday Card

I was asked by my son to make a card for his "old" colleagues from where he used to work.  I thought when he left there I'd get no more orders for cards but it's nice they still remember to get cards off me especially as 50% I receive always goes to charity.  The remit for the card was ladies so I opted to use my Debbie Moore Art Deco Glitter and Glitz CD to make the box and card to go in it.  I had to wait for the box to be made up to work out the size of the card that could go in it and decided to make a concertina card for this one.  I did lots of matting and layering with matching cardstock and paper from the CD.  The card is finished off with sentiment and verse of the computer, die-cuts, peel-offs, lots and lots of gems, ribbon, mirri card and some tissue paper stamped with an Kay Carley Aspects of Design stamp.  Obviously I glitzed up the box as well and added images inside the box after putting the card back in to print on the inside of the card as well inside of leaving it plain white.

This card and matching box I am entering into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - Bling it on
Paper Sundaes - Sundaes bar - Pick at least 2 toppings - I have chosen sparkle and die-cuts
Sparkles Forum - Anything goes
Pile it On - 2 or more ribbons - spotty satin ribbon on the card and a purple organza to keep the tissue paper around the card together
Craft Your Passion - Show us your layers
Moving Along with the Times - Anything goes
Papercrafting Journey - Bling
Ai Factory - Anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Mami Doodles - Let's get girly
Paper Cutz - Anything goes
