Jewellery box + Pink Birthday card

Two posts today :-)
The first one is a double one - it features a small gift and a birthday card for a little 6 year old girl friend of my son.
We were in a beads shop the other day and my son decided to get some colourful crystal beads to make a beautiful bracelet for Mama. (My son loves this sort of thing, I guess he sees me happy sorrounded by crafty bits all day long and he has inherited my passion). There were a few beads left after my bracelet so I suggested we made another bracelet for his friend Emily's upcoming birthday. And it just seemed like a good idea to then alter a little jewellery box I had to put the little bracelet in.
I would like to enter the altered box into the following challenges:
Aly Sundays - Pretty in pink
One Stitch at a time - Girlie
For fun - Use ribbon/lace
Crazy 4 Challenges - Lattice
Craft your days away - With wings
The jewellery box has been painted and then altered with decopatch paper and paper doilies; ribbon, lace, felt flower and button, all from my own stash. The white alphas are stickers; the butterflies a Cuttlebug diecut, embossed with Cuttlebug folders.

And of course, then I made a birthday card to give with the jewellery box.
The card enters the following challenges:
Aly Sundays - Pretty in pink
One Stitch at a Time - Girlie
Stamptacular Sunday - Pretty in Pink
For fun - Use ribbon/lace
CRAFT - Birthdays anything goes
Bee Crafty - Anything goes
The image on the card ("Little Angel Alice") I am not sure of the designer, apologies (I always try to keep track of the designer but for some reason I did not record the name of this one. I know it was a free image featured on Free Digital Stamps not long ago). It is coloured with Letraset Promarkers and has some Stickles. The capital E is made in Word. The candle stamp and sentiment are both Hero Arts.
