Birthday Exploding Box for my Granny

My Granny's Birthday was yesterday, so I decided to make her Birthday card. But from card it becomes to exploding box :D with cake.

I used three adorable images from Art by Mi Ran

Cake was decorating with some flowers and leaves (Wild Orchid Crafts), heart lace, ivory pearls in three sizes and Butterfly die cut (Pippi Butterfly - Memory box dies)

Here is first digi - Rosy Cheek Emma 

Second one is called All of My Heart

and third one is on the lid - Heartstrings 

Happy 28th :D Birthday
(embellies - C.C.Cutters die and handmade bow made on fork)

 And here is pic of closed box - dark red sides are embossed with embossing folder Swirls and added some ivory pearls to that swirls. Edges are distressed with Distress Inkpad - Festive Berries.
