Exploding Box - Birthday

Hi All. Here is an Exploding Box that I made on order. This is the second one that I made. The first one is not shared yet as I need to complete few things in it. In the meanwhile I made this for a friends Birthday.
Please excuse me if you see an overdose of the MS Doily punch in my projects as this is my first MS punch :) I have done the border of the lid with it. The yellow flowers are made using BIG daisy punch.
I have created two different types of flowers: one in full bloom and one closed. The leaves and tendrils are handcut.
I used black glitter balls for the flower center.
A peek at the inside. This cake is totally inspired by Karuna's Magic Explosion Box. I totally loved her creation and it inspired me to try it out too.
I pasted the photos of the birthday girl on the corner flaps of the box. They fold in when the box is closed.
The cake with all the punched flowers and butterflies over it.

I added Happy Birthday sentiment on two side of the box and left two sides black for the person who had ordererd it to write their own wordings. As you can see here, the corners of the photos are also done with MS Doily punch.
Hope you like my work :) Have a good day!
