Lego Box

After making  my  first  box  card  for  Christmas  last  week  ,I  decided  to  make  this  card  for  George's 6th  birthday  as I  am sure he, like  all  six year olds is into  Lego  and  as he lives  near  to  Legoland  in  Windsor  ,I know he  has visited there  a  few times .
I  think  the idea  took  form  when  I  found  I had  an  embossing folder  that  was  the  same form  as lego  blocks  so  I began  by  dry  embossing  the  whole of the  base  card  . I used  the  same folder  for  the  squares on  each  side  and  flap.   I found  some  shiny  card in  my  stash  which  was  ideal  for  the  bricks and  I  punched out  half inch  circles  which  I  added  to  the  rectangles  with  foam  tape  . 
I  found  a  free  digi  of  a lego  man  and  traced  the  logo
The  embellishments  are  peel offs  and  foam letters  ,  The  advantage of  a  card like  this is  that it  folds  down  flat  for  posting  despite  having  so  much  detail  .

I  would  like  to  enter  this  card into  the  following  challenges ======
