Need a little chocolate? Chocolates are definitely associated with Valentine's Day and today's card offers a tempting box of chocolates, made for this week's Inspiration Challenge (PPA25) hosted by Pals Paper Arts! Inspired by this photo of a beautiful piece of mouth-watering chocolate, I created my chocolates and the pretty box on my card using the many versatile punches from Stampin' Up! Embossed embellishments were added to each delectable piece, making each one unique and enticing! The best part about these luscious chocolates? Each one is delightfully calorie-free! Enjoy! :)
