Pile It On ~ (GD) Say It In Style (Sentiments with Bling)

Hi Guys!
This month I am Guest designing for Pile It On and the theme this week is:
Say It In Style!
They would like us to bling up our sentiments. So I decided to make this gift box card which I saw on Randi's awesome blog and she was good enough to make a tutorial for us too which is how I came to make one myself.

And a look inside...
I distressed the whole thing and embossed and blinged it.

I really think this creation needs to be filled with choccies!!

So that's it!
I hope you like it. :-)

A note about Challenges:
As you know I don't usually enter so many challenges. I hate to appear "desperate". lol But part of being a GD member of Pile It On is to enter your project in as many challenges as possible. Thus, the list!
To save time/energy I copy and pasted from feline playful so the links would already be there. Ingenious! Why didn't I think of it before?

          Randi has wonderful projects and she is so sweet to give us tutorials too. Hmm... She reminds me of someone, who could that be??? YOU! :)
          Wonderful box, looks like Marie Antoinette has it on her desk. White and silver with curves and heart punch, so beautiful together.
          Millions of pearls? One by one glued? Ohmy! :)
