Mother's Day Keepsake Box




Hello everyone. I have another creation and this one is for Michelle Perkett's Studio Challenge and Cute Card Thursday Challenge. The theme for MPSC is "Mother's Day". The theme for Cute Card Thursday is "Make Your Own".
I used one of Michelle's images called Amore Fairy and colored it using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I used a jewelry box that I had for one of my necklaces and covered the top with papers from my stash. I left the bottom the same color because it was a good match. I added purple lace border around the lid of the box. I made my own flowers by stamping them and then scanning them and saving them as JPEG files. I was able to color them using Fireworks and then made them different sizes. I used embossing powder for the wings and flowers on the image and stickles glitter glue for the handmade flowers and around my image. A sentiment and some leaves completed my creation.

Hi Pattie! This little box is very sweet! The colors you choose are always so beautiful together! Thanks for sharing the stamping scanning and saving idea for the flowers! I would like to try that next time I'm in the mood to get out the rubber and ink! The Amore Fairy is one of my favorite images. You did a beautiful job with her!
