Pretty In Pink

Good morning everyone, sorry I've been missing this week.. 
Just don't know where the time has gone these past few days.  

Anyway I'm here now to share a little project I've been working on, in fact I've made a few of these the past few months. They are a great alternative to a card..

These exploding boxes are fab... I used my Big Score to create the base then mat and layered the pink card stock to the panels. I embossed the Centura Pearl card stock with the floral delight

For the centre card I used the big score again to make little boxes that I embossed with element textures - rain folder... I used pink ribbon from my stash and attached ribbon embellishments to the centre. Flowers on the top are from WOC

I added die cut butterflies and pearls to the panels and wooden numbers that I coloured with my sparkle pen... The other panel I left blank to add a printed personalised message :-)

Really pleased how this turned out. I took this to my last craft fair and someone was very pleased with it and wanted to purchase it for their mum. So after taking it home and personalising, the finished project looked like this 

(I love dry embossing, gives elegant, simple but stylish effects)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today...
Not sure if you all know but I also make and sell soy wax melts.. 
Would any of you be interested in a little giveaway on melts here on my blog. 
I had one on my selling page this week and everyone seems to like ;-)

Look forward to hearing your thoughts 
Hugs Kelly
