Flower card box

Today is my mom's birthday.  Happy Birthday Mom!!  We had a lovely brunch to celebrate her special day.  For one of her birthday gifts I bought a box of thank you cards and altered it with flowers, lace and pearls:

 
I made the paper roses from Lily Bee's Lovely line.   I'm totally addicted to making these paper roses.  There are different ways to make them, but I first learned how to make this version when I was blog hopping one day and stumbled upon a great tutorial on Maria's blog:  paper rose tutorial.  I colored the lace with Shimmerz Spritz (Cotton Candy). 

And here's the card I made for my sweet mom (also from Lily Bee papers):

 

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by!
