Magnolia Love Collection 2012 Valentine's Candy Book Box

Good evening eveyone and hope you are having a nice weekend.  Today I am posting a project that I worked on for a few days. and it is a Valentine's Book Box.  When I saw the candy book box tutorial over at the Scor-Pal's Blog HERE, I just love it and decided to try one.  However, I wanted to do a smaller box, therefore, wth the same concept of that tutorial, I made mine an inch smaller.  The handmade paper flowers you see on this box are made with the Magnolia Pattern Paper and the Cheery Lynn Cherry Blossom Die.  The large flower has 2 large and 2 small petals.  The small flower has 3 small petals. I sponged some distressing ink on each petals before layering them, then added a pearl in the centre.  Please scroll down to the bottom of this post for the list of material for this project.
I am using the project for the follwoing challenges:
My Time to Craft Challenge 206 - Things with Wings
One Stop Craft Challenge 213 - Sparkle and Bling
Inspire Me Friday 93 - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 191 - Valentines Day or Love
Charisma Cardz Challenge 3 - Hearts & Flowers
Craft Us Crazy Challenge 35 - Celebrate Love or are you seeing the color red
Crafty Ribbons Challenge 37 - Love/Romance/Anniversary
Midweek Magnolias Week 45 - Anything Goes
Here is my finished box.  Since I was able to colored more Love Collection 2013 stamps from Magnolia-licious, I used a few for this project.  On this box cover, I used Tilda with Heart Arrows 
Here is a closer view of these handmade flowers.  I love this Magnolia Paper and the Cheery Lynn Cherry Blossom Die.  Very easy to make flowers.

First post of 2013 with a Tilda with Striped Tights Card

Good morning and Happy New Year everyone.  Today is my very first post in 2013 and I wish you all are havaing a great start!  It is the first Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge and it is hosted by another talented DT member Cheryl.  She is giving a very easy theme and it is 'ANYTHING GOES'.  Isn't it great and for those of you Magnolia fans there, all you have to do is to grab one of your stamps and create a project to join us.  On my card today, I picked one of my older stamps Tilda with Striped Tights of the Pink Collection from Magnolia-licious.  Funny thing is I have this stamp for a while, but just noticed that I have not even used her once. Well, one of my New Year Resolution is to use up some of the stamps that I haven't used, lol.
Here is my finished card
I am also using this card for the following challenges:
