Chocolate and Cream

Good afternoon peeps, hope you have been blessed with the sun like us here on the East Coast, it makes a nice change from the last few grey days and it makes it even better that i have the weekend off!
Today i have something a bit different to share with you, my first attempt at altered art. I have used an old card box  but never thought to take a 'before' picture! but it was just a boring green box which i have covered and added a few extras and turned it into a chocolate recipe box. I had the TOMIC challenge in mind when i made it and have added some gorgeous cooking themed Tilda and Edwin images, here are the first two recipe cards and i have a couple more in progress, hope you like it!


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
