Butterfly Card CASE

Yay, it's finally Friday! Do you ever feel like the weekend can't come fast enough? I'm so glad to know my alarm isn't going to ring at 5 a.m. tomorrow morning...I may sleep in until 6!
Today I have another card with a coordinating gift box for the young woman graduating from med. school. I thought the saying and the pretty butterflies were so appropriate for her. I saw the design for this card on my friend Rebecca's blog; it was so simple and beautiful that I had to CASE it!
The butterflies are punched with Martha Stewart punches and embellished with Swarovski flatback crystals. For the box I made a simple band decorated with a monogram and more butterflies. The band and the letter "K" are both embossed with a Cuttlebug folder to give them a bit of texture.
Sentiment: Penny Black
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Hawaiian Shores, and Summer Sun, SU! Melon Mambo
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals
Extras: Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug/Embossing Folder, QuicKutz "Blossom" Alphabet Die, Spellbinders Nestabilities
Thanks for stopping by; I hope you are having a great Friday!

Oh, Angela, I LOVE this with even more butterflies on there, and the butterfly at the bottom having 3 crystals. Now I'm going to redo my card again, too ;)

What an awesome graduation gift box.
