Altered box & Card set

Hi Friends, I made this gift set to cover a few challenges, but it is also going to a friend quit e soon when her birthday comes along on (Xmas Day!!) The box is 12cm in diameter about 4 x 4 inches, it belonged to one of my Grandsons who got it with a happy meal from you know where, they are twins so have two of everything and I was looking for a box to alter and they said I could have one of their boxes, so sweet until I heard one tell the other that the game was rubbish anyway. Little Monkeys that they are. It was just the right size for some lovely fruity sweets. I quite like the finished set. The challenges they are entering are:

1. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge: This week the theme is a Festive Box, my friends birthday is Xmas Day so although it's for her birthday, it is a celebratory box. Hope that's okay.
2. Quixotic Challenge: This is a brand new challenge blog and it 's the very 1st challenge which has the theme of Birthday's. You have all done a marvelous job girls well done.
3. Pollycraft Monday Challenge: This week the theme is anything but a card, I know I've made a card but I would like to enter the box if that's okay girls.
4. Sketch Saturday Challenge: I followed the sketch this week from Debbie, great sketch hun, love the layout of it.
5. Stamp Something Challenge: This week there is a recipe to follow, 1 ribbon 2 papers 3 embellishments.
6. Allsorts Challenge: This week we are being asked to bring out the bling. It's quite difficult to see but the paper is all sparkly and I've used Sakura tiara glitter pens on my images hat and scarf. I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you will pop back and see me soon.
