A Gift Basket Set
The basket idea came from the uberly talented Lena Katrine--I spotted this last Christmas on the Wild Orchid Crafts Blog Here.  Thanks Lena!!!!
Meet WOJ--Willow with Gingerbread Heart sitting on a bench (stamp from Art Impressions)
Colored with Copics and prisma pencils.  Corners were fancied with MS punch and then inked all edges with TH old paper ink.  Did emboss the base of card with CB folder...cut out with SB Curved rectangles but cut down to make smaller card (size 31/2 x 4). 
Butterfly made with versamark ink stamped on vellum.....sprinkled with white embossing powder..... heated.... then cut out and added MFT adornments.  Edges were glistened with gold glitter glue.
Shows embossing on basket panels--if you look close...I did use TH distress tool on edges before inking with TH old paper ink.  
SU sentiment stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink and also inked edges before outlining with Viva Decor White transparent perlen pen....added MFT adornment; WOC teeny rose and then tied to handle with twine :)
Flowers arrangement on top of basket handle---combo of Wild Orchid, prima, and Zva Leaves.  Here you can see the MS butterfly and heart border punches I used on basket.
This is flower arrangement on side of basket....Inked edges of leaves and flowers with TH old paper ink.  Covered handle with soft satin/silk ribbed ribbon.  Base is a SB scallop circle and SB blossom die.
Finally another full view~~Now I need to fill basket with candles, sachets and ?????chocolates :D

Hi Mary-Lou,
I'm quite the opposite; distressing is one of the things I don't want to be without. Good thing we are all different; would be a boring world otherwise. :-)

This is just a stunning piece of art; love everything about it! I'm sure your mum did as well.
