Be Inspired Wednesday 82

Happy Wednesday everyone!  
Today's Cuttlebug Challenge Blog challenge is very special!  We are honoring Mother's!  
This week, I altered a candy box that I saved from Christmas. It was just the right size for my cards and I knew I would do something with it eventually!  I covered it in designer paper, wrapping it similar to the way I would wrap a present.  The bottom part of the box is sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  For the top, I added lace trim, a cuttlebug embossed panel, a flower and a tag.  The flower on top is made from several white flowers that are sprayed with several different Glimmer Mists.  There is a homemade flower in the midst made from light blue seam binding that is also sprayed with Glimmer Mist!  I've just learned how to make those little homemade flowers!  Sort of gives the box a little vintage touch, I think.

Now, for the cards!  
I made four matching cards, two of them with a scripture from Romans and 
two with a quote from Corrie ten Boom.  These could be given for a variety of occasions.  

Here are the supplies I used for this Mother's Day project:
Spellbinders Ovals and Scalloped Ovals
Martha Stewart Punch
SU! Soft Suede Designer Paper and Cardstock
SU! Pretties Kit
Neenah Cream Cardstock
Lace and ribbon from my stash
