The La Vie En Rose collection is such a beautiful assortment and will provide you with a wonderful array of paper crafting supplies to create!

With so many wonderful googies to use for this Blog Hop, I decided to create this beautiful "Exploding Box Card"! Which just happens to have a three tier cake inside!

Daisy White Cardstock was used for the base and lid
With the Flower side of the La Vie En Rose papers mounted onto Black Cardstock.
The combination came together beautifuly.
The lid and box are 4" x 4"
Black Shimmer Trim was adhered around the edge of the lid and also around each of the three tiers of the cake.
Black & Gold Ribbon used to create the bows!
 A combination of rolled flowers [cricut cuts using Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge] and flowers fussy cut from pre-stamped flowers and the quote "There's no one like you..." using Blossoming Expressions [D1665]

The versatility of this card is wide with the option to use it for weddings; birthdays; any celebration really!
