A different kind of project

My sister and her boyfriend are in the process of buying their first house and they finally got the keys yesterday. This, plus the free stamps from my last Papercraft Inspirations magazine, spurred me on to create this little project as a housewarming present:

Finding all the bits was a feat and a half after packing everything away for our own house viewing yesterday: the foam pads had gone walkabouts as had the gems...I was getting a little bit stressed! Also, it seems nigh on impossible to find a square box frame so I had to settle for this one. If anyone knows where to find them please let me know! I used the stamps from my magazine to print the image (except the happily ever after is from a different set which doesn't have a name), coloured with pencils and added some glitter pen to the flowers and silver to the windows. Then added some green gingham ribbon and a gem and inked up all the edges in gold to match the gorgeous gold papery stuff at the back. Finally I cut out a butterfly and inked that in gold to finish it off. Now I just have to get it to her all in one piece!

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
