This is a card I made for a friend of mine who's friend is getting married on Saturday.   Cathy asked me to make something special and I wasn't too sure where to start but once I started the card almost made itself.  I was thrilled with how it turned out and Cathy was really pleased too.  
I dusted off my cricut for this one and it was actually a pretty simple card to put together.  Its hard to see in the pictures but the first couple of layers are directly on the card, then I added a dome using acetate and added the rest of the embellishments, which include WOC flowers, spellbinder diecuts and gems.  
Unfortunately the box - which I also made, eventually, wasn't as easy to do. The finished card is approx 8inches square and 2inches deep ( I got a little carried away with the acetate) but I got there in the end.
