Clean & Simple Spring Flower Box ........

Hello Everyone ;)
Its good to be able to get back on the computer,
I have been crafting as well,
First of all a little bit of news about myself if your interested,
My feet are nearly back to normal, (Yippeeeeee) and I also gave up smoking Friday night,
I did not mind getting up at all today as even tho it was cold it was so nice to see the sun,

Now onto todays project,
I made this Spring Flower box for my mum and dad's 56th anniversary over the weekend,
It is mostly pink and lilac, with added green,
I made the flowers by embossing the separate layers, cutting them out,
and then using silcone gel to stick them (like decoupage) to make the flowers,
The one on the top is larger than the 3 in the box,

I did use plain stirrer sticks for the stems, then once the silcome glue had dried added green
sakura pen and then modellers grass around the bottom.
All of the flowers have a pink gem in the centre,
and the large one on the lid has a pink star gem.
My mum and dad loved this explosion box,
I am entering this into the challenges over at -
Pink Elephant - Add green,
Saturday Spotlight - Clean & Simple,
One Stop - Optimistically Pink
Crafty Creations - Cut It Out and Pop It Up,

Thanks for stopping by,
and a special thanks to those who have stuck with me while I had problems with my computer and health which meant not so many posts.
