Totally gorjuss- mother

Hi there blog hoppers, this week on totally gorjuss we are looking for creations for mothers, i believe in the UK they will be celebrating that day for the ladies that make all the sacrifices for their families soon, so you gonna make a card for the one and only and inter our challenge?  ther are some really great sponsors and the number of entries goes up each week.

I made this box to house a mini album for my mum, and since out here in South Africa we only celebrate mothers day in May i still have time to make the mini album, when i do i will share with you.  I have chosen the papers to go with this box/card.    My dp is local to us here and is made by enmark, oh i love whiff of joy stamps, cant get enough of them, but if you live in South Africa, the good new is that i supply them so contact me via email on my profile.  I colored my image with copics and added some glaze to the grapes, and boy it took forever to get the color to match my dp.  The flowers are layered and i added some, now what do i call them, wires, breath, dont know what they are but they work, the things i am talking about are the little wirey thingys that are bunched up with my flowers.  The box is almost like a manilla folder it concertinas out to make enough space to add my mini album.  Lots of pearls and a simple sentiment of mother.  Pop over to our challenge blog to see what the other girls have to inspire you: here
