70 birthday wall hanging

I was asked In December By one of Mums closest friends Kath, to make a special wall Hanging for another of  their friends, it was to be for her 70th Birthday On the 30th December.
I managed to get it done with all that was going on with my mum being so ill, This is the first chance I have gotten to blog it
 These two photos are of the box as it looks closed up . as you can see I have used one of the glitter girls Boards for all the embossing detail
 A few more close ups of the lid, the flowers are a mix of some of my own handmade flowers using Penny Duncan`s cut files, and the white ones are from Wild Orchids crafts
 The butterfly was done using a Martha Stewart punch, as were the punched leaves.
These have been all well glittered along with the flower petals.

Below you can see the Wall hanging sitting in the open box, Just used some crepe paper for the bottom of the box  

Here you can see the hanging out of the box, Again I have used the same Glitter Girls board
 to emboss the  Lilac and silver card.
 I have cut out a 70 on my cricut and covered in silver glitter, More punched and glittered Butterflies , and a few more roses For the centre
 In these two close ups you can just about see the dome enclosing the centre embellies.
I have gone around the edges with gems 
 In the photo below you can see both the box and wall hanging together 
Well I am proud to say that Kath really loved it.
 The lady who`s 70th it was made for told me at mums Funeral , That she is keeping it on display permanently.
That she loved it and the colours match her Bed room
