Exploding Box for a wedding

Good evening Everyone,

Another busy week behind me, an equally busy one ahead, but I found a few free moments to post something here! For those of you who have a day off tomorrow - enjoy! And I sincerely hope you're going to have an equally lovely day, as we did today in Dublin, even though I will only see it through the window in my office ;-) I also hope that this is only the start of proper spring/soon-to-come-summer, and not just the odd lucky day! 

Today I decided to share an Exploding Box with you. I made it for a friend, on behalf of her work colleagues - we needed a lot of space for signing the card, so the box was just perfect! I also added a little pocket for a voucher that we gifted her. I managed to ask the bride-to-be about her wedding theme colours, without her being too suspicious of my reasons for it - and therefore black, white and red appeared on the box! 

My friend was absolutely thrilled with the card, and apparently the box got a lot of compliments from her family and friends. Not a bad achievement, seeing that it was only the second box I have made so far! 

I am entering the box into the following challenges:
Creative Creations Challenges - Weddings
Love To Create - Punches and/or dies
A Gem of a challenge - Make it sentimental 
Inky Chicks - Shabby chic 

Enjoy the last hours of Sunday,
