Pink By Design Team Friday!!!!

It's Friday!!!!! Today is Pink by Design Team Challenge and it was to make something for Mother's Day!
Here is what I came up with!

It's a 3x3 gift box with belly band.  I used CTMH solid paper and K&Company patterned paper (just one sheet of each).  I stamped the top and bottom of the box with the Pink by Design Damask background stamp in the matching ink color--I came off looking like a nice printed sheet of paper.
I cut strips of the K&Company patterned paper to line the sides of both the top and bottom of the box, inked the edges with the PTI Chai ink--love this stuff!!!!  Attached them with my ATG to the lid and base.
So for the sentiment I used a PTI die and border stamp and the Pink by Design Our Mothers stamp set.  I attached it to the belly band at the bottom and attached a layered shaped flower to the top.
I also inked the edges of this with Chi as well.  Now for some info about the flower!
So I used the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Seasonal Cartridge all four layers are the same shape---easy right!  Each layer is 1/4" smaller as you move towards the center.  I used the PTI chi and some Color Box Chalk ink in a pinkish red to ink the edges of each layer.  I folded and rolled each layer before building the flower.  I lightly (and I mean lightly) sprayed the layers with a litter water (hardly a mist) and shaped while wet--let it dry and you get some amazing results.  Once dry I layered each cut up and used secured them with an vintage floral brad.  I also roughed the edges before inking--sort of how a rose looks and feels--I really love the way it turned out.
