I love you more than CHOCOLATE!!!! (And that MUST be a LOT!!!)

I did it! Managed to get another few challenges together - and dusted off my Cricut for the first time in quite a while! I've been doing a lot of stamping lately, and just hadn't been using the Cricut that much - but I definitely need to pull it out a little more often again! I think it is getting lonely! 

Here is the inspiration photo from Moxie Fab World:

And the challenge over at My Creative Time was to make a Valentine's card using any cartridge. So, I used my Everyday Pop-up Cards cartridge, and some of Emma's stamps! 
All the paper's are from Crate Paper's Paper Heart 6x6 paper pad - I think this is my favorite Valentine's line of papers right now! They are so pretty!
I cut out the box of chocolates, inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye, and assembled all the layers, adding a doily behind for fun, and pop-dotting the chocolate box above that. 
The tag for the sentiment was cut from Sophisticated cartridge, and I glued some Baker's Twine in the new Cantaloupe color around the edge.
This picture shows the dimension a little bit better: 
The card is 5x5 - don't know why, but I've been loving the square cards lately! 
Oh yes, I also used some crinkle ribbon to tie the sentiment on, after attaching it with pop-dots! 
And the final touch was a bit of doodling around the edges.  
. to see what else I can create today! See you again soon!
