Valentine surprise

Top o' the morning to you and I hope you are all well. Today we have a new challenge beginning at 

and it's Valentine, chosen by Francesca... so dust off the heart dies and papers and join in!!

 I decided to make a wedge box to fill with sweeties for my beau.

I tied the top together with an assortment of red ribbon which was adorned with a little red heart bell. I used a freebie stamp for the tag and heat embossed with red powder which I've had for donkeys and never used. I punched out some red hearts to add to the display...ooh, get me!!

I am taking my box here
