GCSE Success! An Easel Card to Celebrate!

AT LAST!!! I've managed to tear myself away from my addiction for making ATCs and I've made a card!!! ROFL!
This is for my niece, Lily, who did brilliantly in her GCSEs and got the results today....really proud of her!  Its an easel card and matching pyramid gift box made using a graphics collection called 'Thinking of You Girls' which is an exclusive downloadable set from Scrapbookingmad. I created the backing paper using the 3 different tiles that come in the collection, and made a matching tag on both the card and the box. I added some brads, ric-rac and black spotted ribbon on the box (the inside is black spotted too.) The box is filled with her fave sweeties!

This is also going to be my entry in the August competition at Card Making Downloads, where you have to make a card with more than one fold.
