Christmas Thankyou Giftbox And Notelet Set

Here is the side of the box

Here is a better view of the different note cards inside

Hi firstly I would like to apologise for the bad photography it is very dark and gloomy today and the only camera I have is a cheap 5 megapixel so you can imagine the quality it gives.
This is a giftset for my mum she is the best mum I could ever wish for and thought this would make a cute gift for her.
I have used B&w Stamps Apple pie and turtle doves and there are 3 of each design inside with envelopes.
For the box I wanted to keep it simple by using the sentiment stamp'Christmas Thankyou' from a popcorn bear set and used scallop and classic circle nesties and a variety of Wild Orchid Crafts Roses which I have glittered using diamond stickles.All of the colouring has been done using promarkers and as a little finishing touch I have added some red pearls from my stash.Quite a clean and simple look I feel.

I would like to enter this set into the following challenges:

B&W challenge-Winter nights
Polka Doodles-Gift box
Crafts and me-Glitter
Crafty purple frog-Sparkle
Creative card crew-give thanks
Cute card thursday-Anything goes
Dotties world-Anything goes- Red

Thabkyou for looking and again I apologise for the quality of the pictures

This is lovely Lorraine - no wonder it took you ages. The colours are wonderful & it's lovely that you can give this to your Mum. The CAS box compliments the little cards so well & that punched edge of the box is delightful.
