80th Birthday + a sweet treat thankyou.

Morning to you all.
I have a card to share that i made a while back now. I thought i`d try something different for me,so used my hougie board to create the background,and just simply die cut a couple of cheery lynn swirls and added some roses.The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a spellbinders die which i distressed with ink.Added some pearls and hey presto!
 Inside i used a MS corner punch and stamped a swirl border.
 The box,i just added some peel off corners.The shape was a chipboard one i got in my set when i purchased the art philosophy cartridge.The happy birthday was a stamp  also out of the set from close to my heart.
I distressed the edge once again and added a couple of pearls.
Just us girls: Use numbers.

My sister started to make sweet gifts as a different idea as a gift so thought i`d give it ago for a friend + her 2 boys.I got the oasis and black tray from the range which was really cheap i thought(50p for the tray + £1 for the oasis,which i cut in half ,so would be able to do another one.)You could use any container you wanted.
Most of the sweets + popcorn was from Home bargains,(Man i love that shop!) + as my friend had a cold,i put in some cold tablets and some pocket tissues,just for a little humour!

The front.

The back.

All wrapped up!.

Hope you all have a great Sunday,thanks for popping by.
