I Moose show you ..... and CTMH card in a box workshop 3/25/14

this get well card I made for my niece, who simply loves moose (and purple).  Of course, ever since she's made this known we inundate her with moose gifts.  At 34 she's just had some nasty back surgery and will be moosing about 6 weeks of work while she recuperates. But what she's moosing most is being able to pick up her 2 year old.  Please add her to your prayers.  It's going to be a long 6 weeks for her.

I decided to just put a personal get well sentiment inside the card.  The stamp is by Darcie, butterfly from Eyelet Outlet, doilies (white with green dots and purple) made using a Spellbinder's die, embossing with a Cuttlebug Anna Griffin folder, antlers and hoofs paper-pieced, remainder of image colored with markers, ribbon and papers from my stash.  I followed the sketch from Whimsie Doodles which appeared on the Paper Playful post Saturday 3/22.  However, it turns out that sketch was for their January challenge which is over.  Fortunately, the current challenge at Whimsie Doodles is Seeing Spots and I can still enter this card in their challenge. 

I am putting this card in the mailbox and also these fun challenges:

If you recall, last week I mentioned that Joyce showed us 2 samples of cards in a box when we had CTMH class last week.  These cards are really hot right now.  It seems there is one submitted to every challenge I enter.   This week at Joyce's we got to make our own using some of the new CTMH papers.  Two of the gals made birthday boxes, one made a get well box, and three of us made baby boxes.  All the boxes looked different when finished since CTMH DP is all double sided and we could choose what we wanted where. 
Here's my version:
