Diamonds or chocolate?

Sadly the answer is easy for me....good chocolate every time!  Today my project is a box that I made from a file from the Silhouette online store, that is made to hold chocolates, I paired that with one of my favourite images from Sassy Studio Designs called 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'.

The box is quite large - 2" wide x 10" long.  On the inside the box is divided into sections for individual chocolates, but I intend to take that out and just fill it with wrapped chocolates.  Here is a look at the inside.

The image is coloured all with my Grey ProMarkers - I also added a little black for the hair colour.  The skin is coloured with Blush and Soft Peach, I didn't go with the darker colours I have been favouring lately for skin tone as I felt 'Audrey/Holly' should be a bit paler.

Of course I needed to put a little 'bling' around her neck.  Finally I added a sentiment using my Chomas Pen Holder and a silver grey gel pen, the font is a thin font from Lettering Delights.  The sentiment says "Whoever said 'Diamonds are a girls best friend' forgot about chocolate."

The patterned paper I used for the lid is from Recollections, and I also used the same paper to wrap the chocolates that I put inside.

I am entering this project into the 'Anything but a Card Challenge' over on Glitter and Sparkle.
