Congrats Exploding Box ♥

Hello everyone!
Today, I want to show you I made something special for my husband who has achieved an amazing feat in golf. He's made an Albatross - the rarest shot in all of golf - a few years ago, and moreover, this time he made a Hole-in-One! OMG, Isn't that amazing?? It's a pretty incredible achievement for golfers and I think surely it's one of life's truly memorable moments. Congratulations to my husband!  I've been golfing for over 15 years but I've never once gotten it. So proud of his feats!

Okay, Here's my project, it's exploding box as he remember that glorious day forever. I found the tutorial for the box over at the talented Camilla's blog HERE.
And I've used several Magnolia's DooHickey dies for this one.

Here's the box lid..

I've placed the Lace Coaster that I've cut out with DooHickey die, and added some flowers, golf tees, a golf charm and lots of lovely embellies.

Dies(Box lid): Lace Coaster, Rose Leaf, Clover With Flower, Vintage Signs - Magnolia DooHickey dies, Chip Block Alphabet - Tim Holtz Sizzix
Flower: Green Tara, Magnolia
Paper: Magnolia

When the lid goes off..

I've added 2 butterflies made with Magnolia's DooHickey die "Swirly Butterfly" and cut out with a Martha Stewart punch, so when it opens it looks so pretty!
Inside of the box.. It opens flat like this.

I've added a 2 tier cake for the inside the box. I've placed Moss Mat Green and attached a golf tee on top of the cake, and then I put a special golf ball on it, and decorated with plenty of flowers, berries, ribbon and pearls.

I've added a #1 flag cut out with Magnolia's DooHickey die "Flags".

I've used lovely Magnolia's image "Bunny Prince" from the Lost & Found Collection 2014 which coloured with Distress Ink re-inkers.

Also, I've placed the Lace Coaster and the Vintage Sign cut out with Magnolia's DooHickey dies.
Sentiments: Congratulation {text} - Lost & Found Collection 2014, You Are So Special - You Are So Special Collection 2011 both also from Magnolia.

♥ ♥

I've used the gorgeous embellishment which is perfect for any occasion (e.g. congratulation, celebration like this, wedding and anniversary etc.) -  "15mm Pearl & Diamante Embellishment" from the fabulous Ribbon Girl online store.
The other embellies I used: Ivory 30mm Wild Roses, Sweetheart Blossom White, Natural Button Twine and Beaded Stamen White/White also from the Ribbon Girl.

I'd like to enter this into following challenges: 
Craft-Dee Bowz - Anything Goes - With A Bow
