Anyone for Chocolate?

Happy Monday folks !  Hope you had a great weekend, mine consisted of shopping, clearing out cupboards (very therapeutic!) going to a 60th birthday and, of course, crafting !

I've been thinking of making some little boxes to hold a few of these singly wrapped choccie bars and came up with this simple solution. 

Each one was made from patterned card from the DCWV Nanna's Kitchen stack - not that you can actually see much of the background card!! 

The one on the left is decorated with some SU! Early Espresso and Baja Breeze cardstock, cut out with Marianne's Designs and nestie dies.  The edges on both were punched with Martha Stewart border punches and I sponged some Distress Ink around the edges of the lefthand one before assembling.  The image on the righthand one is part of the Buttercup stamp from the Myka Jelinka range of stamps by Queen Kat Designs and coloured with Copics.  The flowers were cut using a nestie die and the tiny gem flowers were from my stash.  The righthand one is going to be part of the Birthday Candy I'm offering to one lucky commenter as part of the birthday celebrations for I ♥ Promarkers this week.  Don't forget to pop back here on wednesday and enter for a chance to win.

Thanks for popping in today - it's lovely to see you :O)
