Explosion Box!

Hi there friends,

Sharing with you a Explosion box which I have tried for the first time :)
It was supposed to be made for a gentleman - that's why I have stuck to some masculine shades sans the flowers and butterflies :)

It is a Birthday themed explosion box with 3 layers!
The outermost has his pictures, the middle one has some beautiful birthday quotes and the innermost layer has digital stamps of cupcakes, gifts, balloons and a empty tag for personal wishes to be written on.
The center has a layered cake with "chocolate icing" on it :)

Challenges entered : Color Conceptions- Anything but cards

Hope you all like it :)
