Happy Birthday - Matching Gift Box

Hi there! Hope you are all well.
I have a 30th Birthday to go to on the weekend and sat down to make a card. I then decided that I would use a card I had already made and make up a matching gift box for it.
I decided on the card that I had made for the latest sketch challenge at Inspired By Stamping.
Here is the gift box -

I have colour co-ordinated with the card (of course). Using Very Vanilla and Always Artichoke as my mains. I have used the sentiment out of the Elements of Style set and inked it with Old Olive. I have placed a pearl either side of the sentiment
I embossed the Very Vanilla panel on the lid with Vintage Wallpaper.

The flowers and wider lace are from Inspired by Stamping.
Here is the card that it is going with -

Here's hoping she likes it!

I would like to enter my gift box into the following challenges -
