Sugar Bowl Challenge - Love and Romance

Here is my entry to the Sugar Bowl Challenge the theme is Love and Romance!I decorated a box of chocolates for a Valentines gift, decided to keep with the traditional pink this time, so if hubby doesn't like it, all the more choccy for me!!!
I wrapped each choccy up individually and added a punched out flower and words I printed out!

Another angle to show the depth. colours are rubbish, it looks so much better in real life, it was either too bright with the snow or the second lot I took using a flash, either way wasn't working well!
The colours are slightly more realistic in this one as laying it down seemed to avoid the snow glare!
The image is the very sweet 'Luvvie' from Sugar Nellie.
The original chocolate box, full of scrummy choccies! Wasn't this box just crying out to be covered in pretty paper?
Supplies: DP ~ Basic Grey 'Sugared'
Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Luvvie' designed by Leanne Ellis
Embellishments ~ Prima flowers, Papermania buttons, ribbon
