Mother's Day Gift Box

Hello and happy Friday! I wasn't going to make anything today, but as I was perusing a few blogs, I came across this box on Nicole's blog. I LOVE it, and was totally inspired to make one ; ) The template is a PTI Lauren Meador Timeless Template called For Keepsake Box. I made the base of my box with Certainly Celery, and the top with Almost Amethyst. The dp is from SU Tea Party DSP. I used this beautiful stamp set from Artful INKables called Bouquets & Butterflies. I colored directly on the floral stamp with Almost Amethyst and Certainly Celery SU markers and cut it out. I stamped the butterfly twice with Pretty in Pink, cut them out, and layered them. I added pearls to the center of the butterfly, and Stickles to the wings and to the flowers~they are very pretty and sparkly IRL ; ) The sentiment is from Verve's Because of You set. I used SU Oval Punches to punch it out, and used a jump ring to attach it to the bow. I hope you like this project! I plan to make more of these because it was so fun! Thank you so much for the inspiration, Nicole! Thank you for stopping by today, and have a wonderful weekend : )
