Beautiful Bride

I have gotten so behind in sharing my cards on here and on my Facebook page! No excuse really other than work has been really busy with it being the end of year - loads more paperwork at the end of the school year - and my laptop power pack blew up, literally with sparks all over, so it was out of action for a few days until I could get a new one delivered. I tell you these are not cheap - almost £100 for one from Dell! Luckily the other one was only 2 months old, so I will get a refund on that one.

Anyway here is a card I made for the Cute As A Button June Progressive Challenge (yep it's that late!), but I never got round to posting it in time for the challenge. My TA is getting married this summer (and is leaving as her husband to be has got a new job in Reading), so I made her this huge card for everyone to sign. It certainly was a labour of love and with the box, it took me 5 hours in total! So much trial and error for the size of the card and box, but it did come out pretty in the end!

And here's the lid - a lot plainer than the actual card, but I had run out of steam by the time I got to this part!
