Cuttlebug Vellum Challenge.

I used pink vellum on this box and them embossed it with the Cuttlebug Argyle Embossing Folder. I attached a layer over the vellum to frame it, and it showcases the Godiva chocolates that are in this box. I could smell them as I was wrapping this gift, and it was like a vampire smelling blood after dark. I almost couldn't contain myself... MMM!!! I attached the purple flowers which were from a dollar lei from the party section at Wally World. You just have to cut the string and you get a bag full of flowers. This is for the Cuttlebug Challenges Blog. Go and look at the DT's awesome creations using up their vellum stash.
