Shhh, don't tell Celeste!

We can't let Celeste see this (well, not until it shows up on her doorstep). In my ArtHaven Creations and Friendships group we had a SWAP and it was to do a Valentine easel card. Well, I got the lovely and multi-talented Celeste (see proof here!). Needless to say, after stalking (oh, by stalking I mean...ummm, yeah, just perusing) her website and her info in the database, I discovered that she loves pink, she loves bling, she loves glitter, and of course she LOVES butterflies! So with that information, I set out to do her easel card.  I used the color pink, I used some Bling, Glitter...well I used Stickles (me and glitter don't play so nicely all the time) and of course had some butterflies on it!!  So whatcha think? I hope she'll like it, I really enjoyed making this for her, she is such a sweet person!
And me being me, I just couldn't send the card all naked and such, so I "made" a box to put it in. And of course I couldn't stop there, oh no... I also made her a FSL Butterfly!
OK, I'm not sure what's up with the colors, but the ribbon on the card does match the flowers (I don't know why the flowers are looking so peachy - may be my TERRIBLE photography skills, or lack thereof.)
 So here's a close up of the card...not sure if you can see the bling! I added some rhinestones and stickled all the butterflies. Also added some stickles to Birgitta!
Here's a close-up that may show the bling better (?)
Did I mention I really loved making this for her! I hope she likes it! But remember, don't tell Celeste!!
