Tweet Heart digi image and challenge!

Happy New Year!!!!! We are staying home husband and I decided we would spend the evening together....just the two of us...we had a very busy Christmas with our we are looking forward to the quite evening celebrating the new year!

Oh, my gosh...I found the cutiest blog....The Digi Kitty....they have a super cute digi image "free" until January hurry over and check them out! They also have a challenge going until Janaury 1st...create something using the free image....

So this is what I created...

I used Sweet Treats cart and cut this super cute little box with my Cricut! I cut the box on p57, since it didn't have any cut outs for layers on this one. I could add my own embellishments.
I colored this super cute image with my Copics and cut the circle and scallop with my Nestabilites Circle.

Added some ribbon around the box and for the embellishment on the bow, I punched the heart in the circle out of the same Designer Paper I used to create the box, the paper is new from MS, her Valentine collection. I then punched 5 more circles out of red cardstock and glued them all together to make a thick stack. I then used some Crystal Effects from SU and covered the entire top of the stack, which has the punched heart in the circle on top. Once it dried, it looks like one of those epoxy embellishments you purchase in a package..I am going to do this technique again...It was very easy and the results are super.

I also added a handle to the basket, the cut file has two little holes on the side
of the basket, So I just added the same designer paper as the handle and attached using 2 little red brads.

I just love how this turned out...I think I may make a few more for Valentines day. These would be perfect to put a treat in for each of my grandchildren.

Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a safe evening!
