My Timeless Templates-Music Makeover

Here is one of Lauren Meader Timeless Templates. I have used the Music Makeover to create this cute little box for a Birthday gift for a friend.

The gift is a little plaque that has a simple wooden stand.
It is hard to see but the Music Makeover Template says "Time to Celebrate". I didn't want to take away from the design and the ribbon, but thought something was missing. Not sure if it works, but this was my only sentiment that was long enough to fill the void.
I decided to make my own wrapping paper to match the design on the card and box. I simply stamped the same Guide Lines stamp onto computer paper using Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray Ink.
Here is a up close picture. I really love how elegant this looks. Simple too; even better!!
Here is a close up of the card. I actually made this card first a few days ago. When I saw the Papertrey Ink Blog Challenge I just knew that I wanted to use the same pattern on the Music Makeover Template. I followed Nichole's directions for tying the button to the ribbon. I think it looks really nice. I am not one for using buttons, but am challenging myself to include them in all my creations lately.
