Unlike my last box, this one is filled with chocolate... lots of yummy chocolate! And I know this because I had to sample some of it first... one for me, one for you, two for me, one for you... and so on. :)
Quick notes: stamp swirl from priceless on Perfect Plum with Elegant Eggplant Classic ink, paper pierce edges and layer on Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Stamp good times from Celebrate Everything on Mellow Moss, punch out with small oval punch and adhere to main image with vintage brads. Next stamp a flower in Mellow Moss Classic ink on Whisper White cardstock, trim and adhere to main layer with Stampin' dimensionals. Assemble box (that is an easy step!). Cut a piece of Kraft taffeta ribbon to fit around the box with enough length to knot. Adhere to box... I just glued where it would be covered by the purple layer. Finally adhere the purple layered image thingy to the first flap of the box with dimensionals, but only along the top edge. This way the other flap of the box can be tucked between the first flap and the purple layer.

In other news... (breath calmly, don't shout!)... I'm the Featured Stamper over at SplitCoastStampers! How freakin' exciting is that? And what a fabulous surprise it was today to finally get out of bed (bad cold!) and turn on my 'puter and see all these emails in my inbox congratulating me on the good news. So to everyone who has sent me an email, PM, or left a nice comment on my blog, the challenge thread, or SCS gallery... Thank You! You all made my day fabulous and I appreciate it so much!!!
