Retirement Card

Over the weekend I made some retirement cards for my parents to give to teachers at the school where they used to work.  Today I'm sharing one of the cards I made using my Bookatrix board.  I've used white pearl card and gold mirror board with a layer of vellum on the top page.  The butterfly was cut using a Memory Box die and I also used some gold metallic nail heads in the four corners and some white ribbon down the middle of the 'book'.

Here's a picture of the box I made to go with the card:

For this I used my smaller Memory Box butterfly die.

I'd like to enter my project in the following challenges:
