Mothering Sunday Present.

So I wanted to do something special for my mum this mothering Sunday, and considering that Matthew and I have still not sorted out our official wedding albums, I decided to create this explosion photo box in the meantime.
So it looks like a pretty gift box...

 Then turns into an embellished mini album!

Here is a close up of some of the daisies I made, and the flower on the lid;

Stamp Sets; Simply Said
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red and Pink Pirouette.
Ink; Black StazOn
Ribbon: Pretty in Pink. Ivory satin - leftover from the wedding!

Punches; Eyelet Border, small heart, daisy and notched corner (non SU)
Other: Basic Rhinestones and Pearls. Fabric flower on lid leftover from the wedding.  Cuttlebug machine with die cuts and embossing folders. Designer Series Paper - Very Vanilla.

I am also entering this creation in a fair few challenges this week;

Our Creative Corner Challenge - 'Girl Power';

Allsorts Challenge - 'Blooming Blossoms'

Charisma Cards - 'Bling and Sparkle'

The ABC Challenge - 'R is for Roses'

I think 4 challenges is quite enough for one project! Let me know what you think...

Happy Crafting
