Creative Moments DT post – Anything but a card

I really had to think about this fortnight’s challenge at Creative Moments as I am predominantly a card maker  but then then…it is supposed to be a challenge!

The image I used is called Tying the knot from Floppy Latte and I dug out a chocolate box that had been getting in the way since Mother’s day.  I am never one to throw out a good box and I knew this one would be great for  a craft project.

The box was first covered with some pale lilac backing paper.  Two doilies of different sizes were layered on top of the backing as the heart box is not symmetrical so I wanted my design to be asymmetrical too.  The sentiment and embellishment all came from Hunkydory’s Timeless elegance and the swirls are made with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.
