A box for my princess!

Hello Everyone, 
It's turned into a very busy couple of weeks so I haven't had much time for crafting. It's my gorgeous girls birthday today..7 years old already!! She's a little bit sad as on Sunday night she slipped on the stairs and hurt her ankle. There was quite a loud 'cracking' noise so off to A & E we went.....a couple of hours later, and an x-ray..she has a badly sprained ankle with a possible hairline crack and torn ligament...so all bandaged up and no running around!! Mmmm!!!
I realised..... last night...that I hadn't made her a card...oops! I knew she wanted one of the box cards so here it is , finished by 11pm in a bit of a rush!
I've used the gorgeous stamp from Sugar nellie, Jasmine (It had to be a fairy for my girl!) I coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings.
I used a Crafts Too flower die, a Die namics petal die and a Joanne Sheen lace edge die. Ribbon and gems from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Stamping Sensations - Anything Goes
Penny Black & More - Anything Goes
Loves Rubber Stamps - Wings
Papertake Weekly - To Die For
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - For the Kids ( My daughter)
