A little gift for you

Hello and welcome to my blog, I don't blog as much as I use to and hope to get back into it, it's just I'm slow and have so much to do now that I'm retired.  I always thought I'd have more time to play, but it turns out not as much LOL.
 A few years ago my son Tommy and his wife Shellie sent me flowers for Mother's Day and with them came a box of candy.  I love the little box and put it aside in hopes one day to redo it.  Well I finally got around to it and I want to share it with you!
Of course I used the wonderful gorgeous paper from Heartfelt Creations along with their stamps and dies.
Paper and tag are from the Birds and Bloom Collection
Leaves are from  the Stamp Open Leaf and die is the Classic Leaf
The flower is from the Delightful Daisy Collection along with the die.
I used some Stickles in the flowers and leaves to give them a little sparkle. 
That's it for now.......hope you like this little gift box and so glad I kept it.
