My First Bookatrix

A friend of mine asked me to make her a card for her parents Golden 50th Anniversary and I agreed. I thought of a few designs and settled on an easel card...then I had an even better idea. I remembered that a long time ago someone gave me a bookatrix board. Funny thing that I foundit quite quickly in my mess of a craft So I grabbed an old folder of peel offs and lots of white cardstock and away I went to making my very first ever bookatrix card.

I even created it's own stand and presentation box:

My friend just loved it as she had never seen anything like this before. I sure hope her parents like it as well. Thanks for having a look at my creation!

Here's my supply list:

White 300 gsm card (A3 sized) - Papermill Direct (I LOVE their card)
Gold peel offs in butterflies gold links, lines and fancy corners. Can't remember where these are from.
All white flowers  - Wild Orchid Crafts
Largest gold paper rose  - Hobbycraft  (white rose misted with homemade gold glimmer mist)
Folk Art Antique Gold paint (I painted the green leaves under the flowers in gold)

I would like to enter my bookatrix in the following challenges:
