Magnolia Chocolate Box

Hello dear all! I took a little "me" time today and decided to make something more elaborate and since it took me half a day, I guess I'll stick to cards for a while from now on:) I wanted to eventually color my new Edwin (which is my favorite stamp from the Magnolia Christmas Dreams collection), mix warm and cold colors and use chocolate:) So it turned into a box with an easel card on top. Hope you like it:



I'm more generous with the pictures than with words today:) Here's a close-up.



Coloring medium: copics, promarkers
raffia, fabric ribbon from stash
Misc: snow marker, stickles, glitter, distress inks, chocolate, cinnamon bar, 3mm gold pearls from Bunny Zoe
Dies: Magnolia fence die
Tools: Scor-pal, sewing machine

Challenges for my box:
Wild Orchid Challenges: Brown and Blue

Thank you everybody for coming by today and for your kind comments! It's always a pleasure hearing from you! Since you are here, take a minute to enter my  CANDY!!!
Wish you all a great weekend!
Big hugs,

Wow! This is a gorgeous creation, Iulia! It would take me several days to complete something as detailed as this. Love the snow effect around Edwin, and he's beautifully colored. Your candy box on the bottom is lovely and filled with yummy candies and I love the cinnamon sticks you've added to the top of the box. Beautiful creation...as always.
