Creative Inspirations - Walking Along in a Winter Wonderland

Good Morning Everyone! Today is Wednesday which means only 1 thing a FAB new challenge over on Creative Inspirations our New theme is Winter Wonderland. Now I struggled with this as I didn't want to make a card..........I knew what I wanted & it didnt turn out right so off it went into the bin & then on attempt 7 this came together, still not what I had in mind BUT I liked it!

My card stock is a lovely powerdy blue from the paper mill, aceat has been embossed with cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, ribbon from my stash, Winter scene & Tilda ice-skating are both Magnolia & have been colored with Pro Markers. On the top of the box is a BIG snowflake which was cut with Cuttlebug die & COVERED with Stardust Stickles.
Inside the box is a little bag with Chocolate Snowballs. Once you have eaten the snowballs I thought it might then be used to add a little batery operated tea-light candle......what do you think??

I'm entering my box into a few other challenges too, which are:
Totally Tilda - Icy Colors
Bunny Zoe's - Christmas NOT a card
Sir Stampalot - Christmas Traditions, snowball fights & ice-skating is VERY traditional!

I hope you will visit us & join in with our challenge HERE. See you all soon! x x x x

Great idea. I think adding the tea light would be great so it gets added use after the candy is gone.
