Vintage Chocolate Covered Roses

Back in May when I was on the Dirty Dozen Design Team our theme was "Life is Like a Box of Chocolates.  I reached back into my roots of card making and came up with this Vintage little number.

How about some Vintage Chocolate with Chocolate Roses dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with sparkling sugar? Hummmm    I made my roses with the Spellbinders Rose Creation and used Picket Fence Crackle Paint and sprinkles with some pretty glitter to make them sparkle.
 Here is a picture of the card and nugget box I made as a gift set.  My intention was to send this to my Mother, but recently her Doctor told her that her sugar is too high.  She is all of 82 pounds, I just don't know if she will ever gain any weight back.
Here is the pretty box open showing you a little peek of the Hershey nuggets!  I just love the roses!!!   Thanks for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  See you soon!

I'm sure your Mother would have loved to get the nuggets but I suppose doctor knows best. I'm sure she would love the card, though. What a beauty with those chocolate roses.

I'm curious - how/where do you keep all your beautiful projects?
