Sketch Saturday, The Cuttlebug Spot & Cuttlebug Challenges

For my card I have used the 'Sketch' from Sketch Saturday Challenge, then I have used the theme of 'Birthday Party Card With Gift Box Or Bag' from the Cuttlebug Challanges and also the theme of 'Confetti Creations' from The Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.
As many of you will know Cuttlebug Challenges are celebrating their birthday throughout the month of September and each week they set a challenge and you must continue your chosen theme through each week. For my theme I chose a little boys party. Last week we made the invitations, you can find mine here
Here is what I have made this week.
I made my version of the box from a tutorial I found on Split Coast Stampers. It is called a 3" x 3" note card box and you can find it here.
Sorry the photo's are not great I thought yesterday it was due to the weather I now realise the injection I had yesterday at the hospital has given me the slight shakes (I hope it wears oiff soon, as it is not a nice feeling).

Box and Lid
Box I didn't know what to put in it and my son had his keyrings to hand so here they are!!
6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Designer Paper - Papermania 'For Him'
Cardstock - Paper Mill Shop
Stamp - Sugar Nellie 'Boy With Balloon'
Sentiment - Daisy & Dandelion 'Dandelion Goes Fishing'
Medium - Promarkers
Eyelet - Ebay (Did you notice it is a balloon???)
Die - Xcut 'Wave'
Embossing - Cuttlebug 'Houndstooth' & 'Swiss Dots'
I think that just about took care of it all.

Hi, What a lovely card and box I love the papers and colours. I think the box needs filling with most crafters other favourite thing chocolate.

Fab boys card and box Kim, love the colours you've used. At least by not filling the box with something edible you won't be tempted to eat them, unlike me. :)
Hugs Tracy x
