Valentine's Day Countdown - Day 3

Piece of Red Velvet Cake

Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like Red Velvet Cake!

The pattern for this box is from PaperCrafts magazine.  I used Cranberry and Colonial White Cardstock.  The top was embossed with my Cuttlebug and the edges were scalloped with scissors.  The rosebud was made with Colonial White cardstock, the edges sponged with Cranberry ink.  Filled with chocolates, this makes a perfect gift!

I'm also entering this in the Paper Cubed and the Shabby Tea Room Challenges. 

Don't forget, this is a blog hop, so be sure to visit the other blogs to see their great artwork!
'Till tomorrow!
