Tilda's Chocolate Delight Gift Box

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's time for another fun colour challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog with blue, green, white/transparent.  Here's a photo for your inspiration along with my interpretation.
I decorated an acetate box I've had for ages with a belly band I created using a MS doily punch and BasicGrey Euphoria DP.  I added rhinestones and a green ribbon from my stash to showcase Fairydust Tilda ~ available in Diana's Magnolia-licious online store.  I got the idea for the gift box on Claudia's blog, Pretty Pressings.  I hope to find more acetate boxes to make as gifts for Christmas and fill them with chocolate.  Ooooh and Diana has the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams collection available on pre-order.  So be sure to check them out!

I'm entering this project into the following challenges:
Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

You know I never thought of using the 'clear' option of the colour challenge, but now that I've seen your project, I can think of all the possibilities...LOL. Very inspiring, Maria! And it's gorgeous. Loving how you colour this adorable Tilda (one that I have but haven't colour yet...sigh). Love your gift box and those chocolate...yummy.

This is really a great take on the challenge Maria.. I would have never thought of using clear acetate box as the clear for the challenge but you thought outside of the box and came up with a perfect idea.. love the Tilda and your use of the rhinestones and paper and ribbon.. all done so well.. a perfect job for this challenge.. a great job, well done.
