More Chocolate Box Cards

Morning everyone,  it is a beautiful Tuesday.  The sun is out and sky is blue, the air still slightly cool and I have walked the dog.   So a good start.  Monday was a wipe out as I was just catching up from my hectic weekend.  My son and I flew to Brisbane for the day.......two hours of flying.  Left 6am this end and then left Brisbane at 6pm that end.  All to check out a college that would be perfect to further his education in the Digital Filming industry.   It was so nice to check out where he could possibly be attending next year and to check out the area it is in.   Of course we checked out a couple of shops in the city too.   Now, however, it is working out finances to see if it is at all possible.

Now it's time to show off some more of my Chocolate Box Cards.  I really did enjoy making these.   You will find the tutorial by Kaye over here at Craftmad.

The first card I started with some SU Tangerine Tango, cut and folded to the instructions.   The window I created by cutting two oval Spellbinders then adding acetate.  I found this lovely butterfly paper that was a magazine giveway.  Teamed it with white paper flowers and orange flowers that I had crocheted and a gold brad.  The tag is white card that I have rounded the corners and run through my Bloom Dots embossing folder.  Added this lovely orange bias binding (from Laura) and added the fantastic stamped butterfly (from Alicia).  Finished with the sticker sentiment and of course filled it with some yummy chocolates.

This pink version I have used some lovely Bazzill Card.  The patterned paper is Rosewillow Garden Pink.  I so love the colours and the shapes of the flowers.  I teamed this up with mint green paper flowers, small pink punched retro flowers and a pink brad.  The tag is a lighter pink card which I ran through my 'Victoria' embossing folder.  Finished with the sticker sentiment and more yummy chocolates.

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:
