Now for a little info about my project. I love the beautiful cards and projects you can create working with Heartfelt Creations stamps and matching dies. I created a box for this challenge. I used a 6x6 box from Cosmo Cricket. The top was covered with design paper from the Basic Grey "Wassail paper pad". The box has an opening on top so I traced the opening and cut it out with scissors. A gold metallic marker was used to outline this opening. The beautiful message is from the HCPC 3354 Heartfelt Creations Classic Message PreCut set. It was gold embossed then attached to the inside of the lid. Ten flowers from the HCPC 2291 Regal Poinsettia 2 Precut Set were gold embossed on ivory card stock. They were cut out with the matching Blossom 2 Nestabilities die. On three of the flowers, the back petals were cut off so I could create dimension. These were layered onto another flower, that did not have petals cut off, with dimensional tape. They were arranged on top of the box. Martha Stewart punched branches were tucked in around the flowers. The pretty gold rhinestone flourishes are from Zva Creative. A pretty lace trim was attached to the sides of the box with ScorTape. Hope you enjoyed seeing my project.  All products used can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Thanks for being a part of our blog hop. Don't forget to create your own project with Heartfelt Creations Products and enter the challenge at Joan's Gardens for a chance to win that exciting grand prize. The next link is to Joan's Gardens where you can see her beautiful card and will get all the information about the challenge. Don't forget to leave a comment here on my blog and at each of the other designer's blogs for a chance to win one of Joan's great prize packages. Have fun creating and good luck!

Note:  I want to thank Heartfelt Creations for the generous donation for this challenge.  It is greatly appreciated and will be loved by one lucky winner.  I also want to thank all our guest designers for helping us celebrate this special challenge with your beautiful cards for this Blog Hop.
