Mother’s Day Gift Box For Stampin for the Weekend

Hello everyone happy Friday! It’s time for a new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend. It’s Jan’s turn to host the challenge and the challenge is............
Mother's Day!!!!
We want to see you make a card or project for Mother's Day or just for Mum.
In the UK Mother's day is on Sunday the 3rd of April, though in South Africa it’s only the 8th of May. So, my South African friends you still have plenty of time to make mother's day cards!
Here is my project:
I decided to make another gift box! You can find the Tutorial here to make your own.
I only used one stamp this time and the picture above is the front.

I’ve used an old Sugar Nellie stamp and colored her with the following Copics:
E37, E35, E33 and E53 - for her hair 
E00, E21 and R20 - for her skin 
RV13, RV11 and RV10 - for the her dress
RV34, RV32 and RV0 - for the dark parts of her dress, the bow in her hair and on the dress.
G17, G14 and G12 - for the patch and lace on her dress, leaves of the flowers in her hands and on her hair.
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - for the flowers in her hands.
W3 - for a shadow around the image.
To decorate the rest of this side I stuck a few leafed shaped, light, pink gems, with a flower at the bottom end.

The second side I decorated with a strip of lace and a thin ribbon at the bottom. A medium size flower to the left and swirls of dark pink gems.

The third side is a big white flower with a pink medium flower inside.
I also took a pink paper butterfly and glittered it with dark pink glitter and then stuck three small gems inside.

On the fourth side, I put a thick piece of lace, with a pink medium flower on the top, a smaller one to the left and a little one to the bottom with three leaf pins sticking out.

To put in the packets for this box, I took fresh lavender and some epson salts and crushed it together, to give a VERY strong, nice lavender smell! 
I made it up in a packet, with a light pink ribbon.
Epson salts is wonderful to put in your bath, for your stressed body and for aching muscles. The lavender not only gives a lovely smell, it is also a relaxing agent!

Here is a picture of the box with out the packets inside.
So I hope you like my box! Please hop over to Stampin for the Weekend Challenge and take a look at the DT work!
