I'd be Lion if I said this wouldn't taste good....

 I have made this gift card for a friend at work, it's her birthday on Saturday and I wanted to give her a token gift, cause she's really lovely. I know she LOVES chocolate and got her a bag of little individually wrapped malteaster bunnies ! Then built a 'box' around the packet and then faced it with a card/topper!
 I gave it a simple 'book like' spine to enclose the packet, but it has the outward appearance of a card !
 The image is a Magnolia stamp, I coloured the lion with Derwent coloursoft pencils and then used Basic Grey 'Ambrosia' paper. I inked all the edges to soften a little. The Happy Birthday sentiment inside is a die cut, along with the swirls, then the butterfly border and butterflies are Martha Stewart punches.
The roses and daisies are from Wild Orchid crafts, the gems are Prima. Tickets are Tim Holtz.

Lets hope she enjoys the gift and has a fabulous day.
