Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

How is everyone doing today, hope well and ready for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration.  As you know, during the month of December we have been featuring the "Limited Edition" stamps, these stamps are only available for purchase until December 31st., if you have not gotten them yet, make sure to purchase them right away before they are gone. 
For this project I recycled a chocolate box, I started by covering it with cardstock and patterned paper.
It features the beautiful flower images from the "Innoscents Flowers" sets, I also used the leaves from the "Leafy Swirls" set.
I stamped the swirls on all sides of the box and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder, this stamp is from the "Elegant Border and Swirls" set.
Here is another view of the box, I added some gold mini brads to all the corners.

I hope you enjoyed my project, make sure to stop the HC Blog and check out the sneak peek at our new collection "Chateau Gate" which will be releasing on January 10th at 12am EST.  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
