Ain't No Sunshine when you're Gone............

This project is a winner at 'Moving Along with the Times!
Sorry this is late, had to go out of town unexpectedly but,  I'M BACK!!! 
Fresh Brewed Designs is looking for song inspirations!  I had this song stuck in my head for days after making this card set!  LOL.   Oh no.......I'm hearing it again!
Yah, a little on the bright side but it's what came together when I did the FBD image.  All of the coloring is with copic markers.

Rainy Day Butterfly is just too cute!

Then it needed a box.  Some measuring, a little cutting, a little scoring and TADA!
The amazingly bright green matches the color of the flower stem and leaf on the cards.
Next came a band to hold the whole thing together.  This was punched with a MS border punch on both sides of an inch and a half strip of paper.  The ribbon is from my stash (JoAnne's I think).  The emblem on the front is a spellbinder die, folded in half.  The front tip slips under the border on the bottom of the box to help keep it shut. (actually stays shut without the band, I just liked it!)
The border on the bottom and the folded sides is another MS border punch.

The button, bling and papers are from my stash, makers unknown :(
Makes for a great 'I miss you' card set.
