Hello everyone and welcome to another fun challenge at Sparkles ForumThe lovely Amy picked the theme for this month, and that’s For  A Special Lady.  We just had Mother’s day in the US on May 11 and I made my Mam one of those “card in a box” cards that are all the rage at the moment, it fits in with this challenge just perfectly.

I used a sheet of Bazzil card for the blue base and pieces of DP from My Minds Eye and Pink Petticoat, everything else, and I do mean everything, came from the scrap box, so this is a fantastic project to use up all those little scraps of card and DP we keep.  A lot of the embellishments were already cut, extras from other projects.  The only pieces I cut were the Memory Box butterflies at the top left.  The flowers are all from Prima, and the cute image is a Penny Black one that I coloured with Prisma Pencils.

These little projects are such fun to make and very easy to a construction challenged person such as I!!  There might be another one in my future, lol!

We’re sponsored again this month by the amazingly generous Marianne Designs Company
