Sue's 50th Birthday

So who would have thought my third post in a week, go We are off to a 50th birthday party tonight and decided to do Sue a chocolate box with a matching card. The card was made using the left over card stock from the chocolate box. Not to exciting but it matches the box.
And this is my Dusty Attic chocolate box. I have used black bazzill cardstock and a Doodlebug patterned paper purchased at The Craft Stand in Malaga, I have coloured some of the leaves with a promarkers to add a little colour. Sue's fav colours are black, white and navy blue. Thank goodness because it made my job easy. The roses I have done myself using the Tim Holtz alterations die cut, and added some little pearls inside coloured with my promarkers so they matched. Rhinestones by Kaisercraft and the writing, although you can't see it, has been given a shimmer using my version of smooch spritz, and then covered with some Glossy Accents.
Filled it with some chocolates, and yep I ate the ones that wouldn't fit......tutt tutt.
Thanks so much for popping by and leaving your comments I love reading them. Have yourselves a fantastic weekend. I'm now going to keep crafting I still have one challenge to complete and I hope to have it done today.....or tomorrow.
Bye for now
