Shades of Red on the Path of Positivity

This month, the Path of Positivity challenge blog continues its exploration of the many shades of colors and how they affect our creativity and lives. Today starts the optional challenge theme of SHADES OF RED
RED is a vibrant color, and stirs my emotions. That's probably why many people associate RED with passion and love. Since Valentine's Day isn't far off, I decided to create a Valentine's Day box for a friend using a digi from Pattie's Creations called Valentine Bear Be Mine.

I covered a box I received in the mail with patterned papers and bling, then colored my image and framed it and my sentiment with a die-cut using my Epic Six machine.
The sentiment reads, "What's better than Chocolate for Valentine's Day?" I decorated the inside of the box as well...where the answer is plain and simple!
Before calling my gift box "finished", I blinged the edges top and bottom and added a bouquet of flowers and a tiny bow to the front. My friend will agree with my sentiment since she is wild over chocolate.

The Path of Positivity blog wants to know how you feel about the color red. Create with the optional theme of "shades of red" and link up to their challenge blog this month. If you do follow the optional theme, be sure to add FT after your name so that you are included in the draw for the prize for Most Inspirational. 

In order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, ALL creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don't need to follow the optional theme if you simply want a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $15 gift certificate from Ike's Art, one of two guest sponsors this month. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win an additional sponsored prize of Three (3) images from Pattie's Creations, the second of this month's guest sponsors, for the project chosen as Most Inspiring.

Good luck and happy crafting!
