Although the flowers look peach and purple, they are in fact peach and two tone brown(ish). I wanted to use peaches and browns with some green in there. I used some of the same papers inside the card and a sentiment I found on the internet (freebie). I deliberately left the inside quite 'clean' because I wanted the sentiment to be the main part of the inside.
Because of the floral embellishments on the front of the card I decided to make a box - I have templates and boards but I don't use them, I always make boxes by using my own measuring system. Again I used the papers I had used for the card plus some die cuts and flowers to embellish the top.
The die cuts in the corners are all from one Di-Lites die but I felt it would be too much to use four so I placed one in the top right-hand corner and then cut the rest to an almost heart shape and placed them in the other three corners.
