Jellypark Friends - Pretty Pastels

Happy Friday, and greetings from Jellypark Friends.  It's time for another challenge, this fortnight the theme is "Pretty Pastels".   Most of you have had a little too much winter this year so this is the perfect challenge for bringing out some papers with spring themes.  Just looking at some yellow gingham will put a smile on your face.
This looks like a box but it's a card.  That's right, it's a card.  If the embellishments aren't too big and thick it'll fold flat and fit into an envelope.  Even with all the buttons and flowers on this box it still folded up and went into an envelope.  
I got the idea for this at the new Jellypark Digital Craft Store.  Claire, the owner and the creator of all the adorable images at Jellypark made one of these cards with a baby theme and published a free tutorial for it on the store's website.  The directions are very easy to follow, you have got to try one, you'll be amazed.
From a slightly different angle you can see that the bunny holding the basket is held up on a stick pin (so is the green egg with the pink hearts).  The tutorial calls for the use of craft wire to hold up the images but at this time I was couldn't remember where I have stored my wire but I could find the stick pins.  So just keep in mind when you're following a tutorial, you can take some liberties and still get good results.

This box went together so easily I'm ready to make another one.  Wouldn't it be great in as a Christmas card or a birthday card.  

By the way, as pretty and as much fun as this card is, I don't recommend mailing it unless it is going inside a package or a bubble envelope.  

Here's the deets:
stamps - Jellypark Friends "Easter Eggs", "Bunny Rabbit", "Charity Rabbit and Balloon", "Ewe Are So Sweet Sheep", "Woman in a Hat Reading a Book"
ink - printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Whisper White" card stock; Bazzill "Chablis" and "Parakeet" card stock; October Afternoon "Sidewalks" patterned paper
miscellaneous - copics; butterfly and daisy buttons; ribbon rose; prima flower; stick pins; Martha Stewart grass border punch; stickles; ribbon
