Mother's Day THANK YOU box

Good afternoon Everyone,

I am feeling rather crafty this weekend - just made another creation, and thought I would share it now, seeing  that I have a free moment or two... A few days ago I showed you a Mother's Day card I made... Well, this morning I bought a gift for my Mum (which is a surprise!), and so I thought that I could make a nice box for the pressie... I went for the same LOTV image I used for the card, and I coloured it in a very similar way. No paper piecing this time, though. But even though I used a different shade of purple, I still stayed faithful to her favourite tones :) I also made little bows with a matching ribbon, and then had a lot of fun (not!) trying to stick the fiddly tiny letters... They require a lot of patience, but the end result is quite impressive, I have to say! All in all, I am happy with the result! 


What do you think? 




Since the pressie is a surprise, for photo purposes
I used an empty CD box as a "gift"




 And here are the card and the box together - 
different shades of purple, but still purple! :)


I am entering it into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Things with wings
