Happy Birthday Box Card

Well, I finally made my first attempt at a box card - thanks to you tube - there are quite a few versions to check out, I think mine became a combination of several!  It was a lot of fun, but I must admit I have never ended up having to wash my hands so many times because of the glue that was all over my fingers!  The cardstock was from Colorbok and K&Company.  The inserts are all stickers except for the pinwheels.
I found I had to glue the stickers to a piece of cardstock before I glued them in place. The shiny paper they came on would just separate.  Didn't think to take a picture of it folded !

Thought this photo gave you a better view of the layers.

This is for our friend who has alzhiemers and parkinsons and is in a nursing home, hope he realizes it is for his birthday!  

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Suzy Bees Blooming             Anything Goes
Scrapping for Fun                 Anything Goes
Crafting By Design               Anything Goes / Use a Sentiment

What a challenge for you. I have never tried to make a box card. It seems to take a lot of "stuff" for all the layers. Great job.
You have been very busy lately.
