Prom Dress Gift Box

My 17 year old granddaughter is going to her first prom this year.....
I will probably be out of town for the day of her prom.....
So I got this bright idea to give her a little keepsake from her pappa and I...
I made this little prom dress box to put a little gift in.....
I made the flowers using a cheery lynn die...and my wonderful flower tools...
which I did take a picture of, but am having camera issues....
It may not look like it, but I worked each layer of flower to soft and slightly curl the petals....
it took me off an on most of the afternoon to make these.....
I am entering this in the challenge at Joan's Garden this week  to use a die or punch to make flowers.....
wish you could see it in person...it is really very pretty!!
