Anna's Birthday and Anniversary Cards

One of my co-workers - Dennis - is just a fantastic young man.  He is our resident computer guru!  And let me tell you, he has saved me from myself on the computer more times than I want to count.  He always is intrigued by the cards I make and take in to show the girls and him.  So I volunteered to make a birthday card and anniversary card for his wife. 

I forgot to take a picture of Anna's card before I delivered it.  It was similar to this except it had all white flowers. 

Because of all the flowers, the card didn't fit in an envelope, so I decorated a box for it.

This is the top.  The shiny designer paper made it difficult to get a good picture without a lot of glare.

The paper is from the DCWV Luxury Stack.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  I just love their flowers!  The ribbons are from WalMart.

I used a wide braided lace I had in my stash to decorate the sides.  You can also see the narrow blue lace I put around the top edges to help hide the gap between the box top and edges.

Here's a close up of the floral arrangement and ribbons.

I really appreciate you taking time to stopping by and having a looking!
