Glitzy Recycled Box and Card...

I promised I'd be back with another card and more of my glitzy paper for you....

So... I'm back with more of my pretty glitter paper and a special little card
and  matching project for you today.
Some time ago, Selma of Selma's Stamping Corner inspired me with her pretty little recycled  "Laughing Cow Cheese Box".  Thanks....Selma!  The idea was fantastic and your box was beautiful!
I embraced  her lovely box and wanted to try a stab at it myself.  I happened to have a empty Laughing Cow cheese box waiting. I was inspired by her and decided to use my pretty glitter paper  on this project. I decorated my box first and then decided I needed a card to match the box.  I think this makes a lovely two-some, doesn't it?

I also decorated the inside of the box with soft pretty flowered paper to make it look nice inside as well.
 I do love those Hershey chocolate candies!  I know of few people who don't like a piece of chocolate candy, now and then?  So what could be better to fill up a box?
I used my daisy flower paper punch to make cute sparkly little flowers and attached them to the top of each candy and attached a light pink rhinestones to the center of each flower to add more bling.
Now...I didn't put it in my picture but I do plan on putting pretty iridescent grass on the bottom of the box to look more feminine when eventually giving this away at some point with the matching card.  I most likely will save this until Christmas time to give it away then, as it does look like a bit of a Christmas theme with the red glitzy paper and reddish large roses and green leafs.
Again I tried to photograph this in the sun to catch as much glitz on the paper for you. My sweet blog friend Jill is right, photographing our cards sometimes just doesn't do them justice.
If this is something that you particularly liked,  please leave me a comment,
 so I know you where here today?  I look forward to comments.  Thanks for stopping by here today!
I look forward to having you...
