For You Mom!
I created this gift set using inspiration from both Cuttlebug Challenges and CPS sketch 113.
At CC we were were inspired to create something for Mom so I created a Mother's Day card using the CPS sketch. And as I had another wooden container from the dollar store decided to decorate it for Mom too!
I was going through my stash the other day and found this pansy and swirl paper by My Minds Eye to which I had matched some core'dinations paper.
So I used the blue embossed layer to create the base for my card which I sanded to emphasize the embossing. Then I used my other favourite technique of glittered frames but I did paint the chipboard in light green and then glitter it. Mom is cut using the Emily Quickutz font to which I added some bling and popped up the O. I then added a couple of diamond Stickled pansies.
I used very similar techniques on the butterfly container with the Quickutz font Moxie.
I think I was in a glittery mood tonight, they are both very sparkly!
