Card box holder in colors inspired by the beach

We are celebating the 7th birthday of Bugaboo over at Catch the Bug with daily "Under the Sea" challenges over at Catch the Bug. For day 3 we have a color challenge with colors inspired by the beach and ocean:
I  have made a card box holder for this challenge. This box will contain all the cards I will make for this week and be given as a present. I plan on making more of these boxes and different themed cards, I think they will make great personal gifts. Here you can see a pic of the inside:
The papers I used comes from a paperpad from Tilda that was given to me as a Christmas pressie from my mum. I think the papers pick up several of the colors of the inspiration picture. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the decorative border. The little merman was colored with Spectrum Noir pens and I used an embossing folder, stitched oval dies and one with bbbles, covered it with glitter.

This card box is also for:
Crafty Calendar - Something New (papers and the card box holder design)
Daring Cardmakers - Try Something New (the card box holder design)
Brown Sugar - #233 Anything Goes

Fabulous idea Pia, and love see you have made a 3D project! The cover of your card-box looks amazing with that embossed background and the cute marmaid-man in the stitched ovals with the bubbles inlay!! Amazing choice of papers, too,and love the border iside the box! Definitely this is an useful craft project and so pretty to look at!
