A box of chocolate

Hi there, sorry haven't been around much I have been fighting a cold or something. But it seems to be getting much better. Today I made this box for a Timeess Tuesday #152 challenge over at Flourishes. To make a box or treat holder for Valentine treats. I didn't do hearts or flowers. This time I went with LOVE BIRDS!! Yep they are in love! I recently won this set and the Keyhole die from Flourishes and I love this sweet set. The box is empty as I need to get to the store, but I think I will put some Dove chocolate in there.


Here is a side view.



and this is the inside and as you can see it's empty, drats I could use some chocolate!


The stamp set is "Snow Wonderful" by Flourishes. I got the instruction for the box from Technique Junkies. It calls for the Top Note die, I didn't have that so went with Spellbinders.
I colored the birds with Prisma Pencils and sponged with Mementos. Not sure where the DP came from. The card stock is GKD.
Have a good night and thanks for stopping by.

Geri, this box is so pretty! Gorgeous job coloring the birdies! Glad you are feeling better. I could use some chocolate tonight, too! Ha!!

Geri, Your coloring of this image has (almost) left me speechless. Your birds look like they are going to fly away any minute now. Fabulous job. I like your designer paper also. Isn't it terrible when you have a craving for chocolate and you don't have any? I do hope you are on them mend. My Hubby is suffering with something right now also. Tis the season for colds and flue I guess.

I love boxes, and this one is fabulous! I like that it's divided. Gorgeous coloring on the birds. How cool to have had a fox snoozing on the porch. :) Thanks for joining us this week for the Timeless Tuesday challenge.
