Easter Gift Set

Good Evening!
Two posts in one day. Hope I don't upset anyone!
I know my day will be super busy tomorrow and I will have other things to share but wanted to show you a little gift I'm giving to a couple of the ladies I work with.
I really wanted to use the new Easter Elegance Set from Verve Visual. It's amazing!
The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink and it's called Aqua Mist. So pretty!!! I also used Imaginisce For Peep's Sake Collection. I pulled out my sewing machine today and it was a good thing my Mom called so I could ask her how to change some settings. I wanted to add a few embellishments to the cards so I used Martha Stewart Ribbon, Primas, Heidi Swapp Jewels and some Liquid Pearls.

The boxes are from Martha Stewart and they were some I picked up before Christmas. I don't recall how much they were but they were on clearance for a STEAL ;)
I added a piece of Aqua Mist to the top and bottom after I had used the small corner rounder punch to make a scallop border. The box comes with a window and I didn't want to cover it up so I used the coluzzle to cut an oval in the DP.
The back of the box is plain except that I added the Jelly Bean Prayer to it.
You can find that prayer HERE.
