Alota Valentine's

Helene of Alota stamps sent me some new Valentine stamps to play with. I've used one of the images and one of the sentiments on this playing cards gift box.

I cut out and scored the playing cards gift box ( idea from Scor-pal) using purple CS. It makes a change to use something other than red for Valentines. I then covered the sides with some black and white DP. Sorry it was in my stash from ages ago, so I don't know the name. I added the black peel off heart border. The Roses image has been coloured in with promarkers and then I added some sakura purple metallic pen to them. I wound a piece of checked ribbon around the base too. I made a little tag and used the sentiment stamp from Alota to stamp on the purple square. I then added strips of black peel off and again went round these with the metallic pen. I just added some fibres to thread through the hole with an eyelet.
