Challenge *6* at the Sugar Bowl.......

As Mothers Day in the UK falls on March 22nd this year, at the Sugar Bowl we were to make a card (or other craft project) for our Mother. This does not have to be specifically a Mothers Day card, just something you know that your Mother would love! Since Mother's Day isn't until May here I just made her a thinking of you card and box.
The box is filled with some Girl Scout Cookies. Thin Mints to be exact ~ she loves these things. I have had this image forever and think it is just the cutest thing but had yet to use it!! I knew it would be perfect for my mom as she loves gardening. In the Spring she spends all days tending to all her plants!! Her yard is beautiful though ~ I must admit.I decided to keep it pretty simple as that is my mom's style and she loves blue so I had to use this paper. It was a challenge as I don't use these colors and there are not many layers but I rather like the way it came out!! I did however have to distress the papers some ~ just because that is my style! (LOL)

Paper: Making Memories
Inks: distress inks
Accessories: button ~ Making Memories, twine and pearl from stash, flower ~ Prima

Make sure to stop by and see the rest of the DT's work. Beautiful as always! Well I hope you can all play along. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

EDITED: Make sure to make time for this one as there is a fabulous prize!! I can't believe I forgot!!! You can win either: The all new 'Gorjuss Girls Set 2' or
The all new 'Baskets & Butterflies collection' by Elisabeth Bell. Good luck!!
