Thank you gift set

Good evening! Hope this finds everyone doing well...this is a set that I created for the therapist working with Rick. We were talking and she was saying how much she loves chocolate, don't we all? and I decided to make her this nugget box and a thank you card. It works for two challenges this week. The first is the challenge at There's Magic in the Air where my buddy Olga challenged us to create a container of some sort with an image from TMITA. The base and sleeve for this was made using paper from the paper pack "Dear Heart" from DCWV.I colored Nina's image "Floating Softly" with SU markers Pixie Pink, So Safron and Always Artichoke and cut it out with a labels 4 nestie. I stamped flowers from my SU set Little Pieces on white address labels and wrapped them around Hershey's milk chocolate truffles. The beautiful satin ribbon is some that I purchased at my local Dollar Tree. Here is a closer picture of the box.

The second challenge is a sketch at A Fairy Creative Place . I used Laura's stamp set Thank You and stamped the flower and sentiment on sweet corn card stock by Gina K and cut with a labels 4 nestie. I used some of the same striped dp and just turned it in opposite directions. The layer under the focal image is SU purely pomegranate and matches the ribbon perfectly. I think this turned out well and I hope that Emily likes it.Here is a closer picture of the card. Enjoy the rest of your evening!

What a wonderful gift, Patti! You did an excellent job with Olga's challenge. Thanks for stopping by my blog. When I saw that cat image at Paper Cupcakes I just had to have it and if you will check out this post, you'll find out why.

Patti, what an elegant gift box and your candles all wrapped up sooo pretty as well! Plus, what a lovely set and a great idea. I will have to remember this! I think the therapist is going to love it and how thoughtful as well! Thanks for playing along with our challenge this week over at TMITA/PCC! Hope to see you next week!
