Wedding anniversary giftbox

Hello everybody,

Today I would like to show you a giftbox that I made for an aunt and uncle by marriage who will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary next Saturday. I have had this lovely heart shape wooden box in my cupboard for ages waiting for a chance to use it and I thought this was the perfect time.
The sentiment is in Dutch as I'm from Holland and so are the celebrating couple but I'm sure you can guess what it means. I used a digi image from a new company for me, JustInkLined, it's called Ted and Agnes. I was in doubt about using this funny image or a more romantic one but the hubby insisted that his aunt and uncle would love the funny image.
A close up of the image, as always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
A close up of the gorgeous flowers in the right corner of the box. I adore the Magnolia's and the pretty Apple Blossoms.
And a close up of the flowers on the bottom of the box.
I finished the box with gorgeous lace along the side of the box. Absolutely adore this lace but as I type this post it's not in stock in the store. I'm not sure if it'll be back on a later date (hope so because I just about used all of it) but I'll leave a link on the bottom to the lace folder so you can see for yourselves if it's in store as you read this.

Hope you like my giftbox and more importantly, hope the couple that we will be giving the box to on their party Saturday will like it. Have a great Wednesday everybody!!
