Purple Passion - Allsorts DT #172

Morning everyone,
Hope you're all ready for another 
 challenge as it's Saturday once again, don't the weeks roll by!
Last weeks Allsorts challenge was a runaway success for new teamie Sarah, I guess everybody loves layers :) I hope our other new teamie, Tracy, has as many entrants this week with her fab theme of 
Purple Passion.

With a challenge title like that I just had to base mine around Cadbury's Dairy Milk, as the packaging is purple and the chocolate is certainly a passion of mine lol! So, I put my thinking cap on and made an easel box card....

I made a 4"x4" box and covered the outside of it with dairy milk wrapper, the lid also has a doo hickey peony petal flower and several WOC roses tucked in around some purple ribbon and a feather I found lurking in my stash. The sentiment is a Whimsey mini postage stamp.

Behind the image on the inside of the lid, I used doo hickey scalloped stitched lace to edge the purple polka dot paper with a spellbinders nestie labels two for a written message.

My masked image, merging Magnolia Tilda with striped apron and tin boxes is coloured using DI's.

and as you can see the easel card comes out of the box, although I did toy with the idea of sticking it down so it doesn't come out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today and leaving such inspirational comments. 
Please visit my other teamie's, whose work is all so beautiful. Allsorts are sponsored this week by

Do you know Nicola, Cadbury's didn't even occur to me with colourway and I'm the best chocoholic diabetic ever.

Your creation is a really fabulous take on the theme.

Hope you have a good weekend.
