You Are The Best Mom

My project to share is an exploding box Valentine theme for a mother. I made this for my sample exploding box kit so some sides are empty as they will be adhere with photos. 

This is the outer box and decorated with opposite sides with prima flowers and layered butterflies.
The lower photo you can see the lid with the ribbon.

Once the box is open this are the inner panels. I am using the sentiment set from Tech Tues Ali Edwards - Love Mom. The flower in the center with the sentiment is a gift from my hubby last Christmas. I was surprised he bought me a box of crafting goodies. You can see 1 panel with a rosette, my very first.

Here is a closeup of the sentiment .
