Anniversary Box Card

I had a lot of fun building this explosion box card. I made this wedding cake for my daughter last year and it will be their first anniversary this coming year.  Therefore, I used the lavender colors, first anniversary sentiments and flowers on top of the cake as the theme for this card.
I used a variety of brands for this card.  I made all of the flowers for this card.

Supplies used:
Cherry Lynn dies:  Horizon French Flair Boutique Stacker Frame, Flourish Leaf Strip, Mini Fanciful Flourish, Teas Rose Small, Medium and Small Rose, Sophia's Heart, Two of Hearts, and Ivy Strip

Tattered Lace dies:  Celebrate Interlocking and Cherished Hearts Corner

Martha Stewart Branch punch

Stampin Up supplies:  Happy Anniversary stamp and embossing folder

Cottage Cutz die:  Birthday Candle number dies

Creative Expression die:  Festive Collection - 2014 Christmas Angel (silver glittered dove)

Spellbinder dies:  Label One Nestabilities

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Gorgeous, Nancy! I've not created an explosion box card yet, and would enjoy making one similar to yours, with the many layers of pretty shapes on the flattened areas, and a gorgeous interior center piece! Do you recall where you found the template for your card? (it's ok if you don't LOL) - this is one of the prettiest I've ever seen. Maybe I could make one similar? The "lid" is just as beautiful, and there are so many tiny details everywhere! I can imagine your dainty fingers joyously putting this together for your daughter, who is sure to treasure it. hugs, de
