For my "berry" sweet Mom!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I have a very special project to share with you today! It's my own Mom's gift! Hopefully she won't check my blog till after lunch tomorrow!
These first two photos are a little basket I made for her. I actually made two, one red and one white then put them back to back. Here's the template I used. I filled it with several paper strawberries. They are airbrushed (hubby and kids got me a Copic airbrush kit for Mother's Day!!!). They can hold little candies too! Here's the link to those. Her actual gift is the little scroll tied with the red ribbon. I didn't want to use a plain old gift card holder :)

This is the card I'm using to go with her gift. I made it so it opens a little differently than normal. It's fun to change things up!

Images-Magnolia Tilda and strawberry
Papers-red and white card stock
