PPA25 - " is like a box of chocolates."

Ppa25 inspiration

This weeks PPA challenge is an inspiration challenge based on the picture above. I remember getting a special box of chocolates for Valentines Day. I really love chocolate, but I think I enjoyed the boxes with the satin, ribbons and flowers as much as the candy inside. I would keep the boxes and put all my little trinkets in them until they fell apart. I haven't seen boxes like those in a long time. I also prefer chocolate now that comes with a gold wrapper. I'm sure you know what I am referring to:). I thought I would make a card somewhat like a box that chocolates would come in. This design would also be cute on top of a small altered box with a few gold wrapped truffles.

Stamps - Well Scripted, Tiny Tags
Ink -chocolate chip
Paper- Whisper White Bride, real red and chocolate chip card stock
Accessories - Sizzix scallop and hearts and brackets dies, circle scissors plus, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, chocolate chip corduroy button.


  1. Sweet scallopy card - love that chocolate ribbon with the corduroy button!

  2. Very creative take on the sketch! So glad you play @PPA!

  3. I remember those pretty boxes very well, Tara! I saved them too! I love your card, too! Love the specialty paper behind your red heart! The satin ribbon and corduroy button are the perfect compliment, too. Just looking at this pretty card makes me want chocolate! Great job with the challenge!

  4. Nice card Tara! I stayed a little longer in your blog and liked everything I saw. Nice projects and very inspirational.

  5. Oh, do I ever remember those boxes! Such an adorable card! Thanks for playing @ PPA!
