Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - February 2015 - Anything goes or the option of LOVE IS ALL AROUND

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  The topic for January 2015 is "anything goes with the option of love is all around".  This obviously could mean Valentine's Day, Engagement, Wedding, Anniversary or even sending someone some love on their birthday.  Normally it would be my turn in a fortnight but I have done swapsies with a team mate.
The sponsor for this month is Di's Digi Stamps and the prize is to spend $10 in their store.
 I decided to make a very special "with love and best wishes on your birthday" card and box for a very special friend.  She also has a LOVE of House Mouse, Happy Hoppers and the Gruffies!!
 I have used various decoupage sheets that I got from Joanna Sheen that I just couldn't bear to use but have taken a deep breath and cut them out!!
 For the page to write our message on I have used a House Mouse birthday stamp on the corner and coloured in with my Graph't it pens.
 As you can see I have used a diverse array of different images.
 I have used lots of different embellishments like die-cuts, flowers, beads, ribbon, Papermania Glitterations, sentiments and flowers from Polkadoodles CD, pearls, doilies, brads, flowers from a paper set called "Funky Flowers" by Buckwell Craft Supplies.
As it was a large 8x8 concertina card there was no chance it would go in an envelope so I have made a box for it to go in.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
