book/box card !!!

Hi all
here is a project i have made after seeing something similar in the craft stamper mag this month and i couldn't wait to have a go myself,it was very time consuming and very fiddly so maybe it was a one off !!!! i boxed in the sides as i didn't like the folded page look and distressed it with tim holtz old paper distress ink,i also stamped corners on the panels with stormy sky TH distress ink
i used bearly mine papers,a stunning butterfly stamp set from the crafty pad, ribbon and pearls are from meiflower, the flower punch on the inside is a retro flower punch.
