Mothers day Card in a Box

I made this card in a box for Mothers day for some-one who saw my Valentine card in a box and this is only my second one so was quite pleased with the end result.The papers and images are from Graphic 45 Secret garden,with some papers and sentiment from Craftwork Cards Botanical. a few dies and liquid pearls added,and I used a butterfly border die round edges of box.Hope her Mum likes it.

Oh my word Carol, this Mother's Day card in a box is stunning. I'm just imagining how moved that special Mum will feel when she received this gift and she sees all those wonderful butterflies in such gorgeous shades of lilacs and purples. Each 'flap' of your box is a work of art in itself and I am so taken with the vintage touch for the back and forefront flaps and the enclosed message card. This is so much more than a card ....it's a very special Mother's Day gift that can be kept on display to give such a warm feeling of love long after the day has passed....how lovely.
Love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
