Valentine Chocolates!

Hi there!
I have had this Alota chocolate box stamp inked up and coloured for a while now, I just haven't had the chance to put it on a card! This is one of my new Alota stamps and it is wonderful - I love it! I coloured the Tilda from the New Years Collection in with Distress Inks. The chocolate box was painted with my Twinkling H20's - it has a beautiful shimmer to it! The background paper says 'oh so sweet' all over it - I think it is probably for a baby girl but I thought it worked perfectly with the box of chocolates! I used a panel down the middle of a slightly darker pink to add some contrast and interest. The bottom of the card hasn't shown up to clearly but I have a scalloped panel on the bottom with some gorgeous heart crochet lace sitting on the top. I added a swirl die cut and a prima flower with a felt die cut flower on the top. With a silver brad I adhered a small heart charm to the centre of the flower.
For the inside of the card I used a matching piece of cardstock from the main front panel, adhered a paper doily and used a Labels 1 die cut from spellbinders for my sentiment. I ran a piece of pale pink organza ribbon behind the panel to add a little extra detail. I used 3 little stick-on brads above and below the sentiment.
I was really happy with this card - it turned out so pretty! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look and post a comment! I hope you're all enjoying a fabulous day.
