It is time for a new Tiddly Inks Challenge 
Come join us and get your Valentines done at the same time in our
Valentine's Challenge

 I made a Latch Sleeve
It is a great way to dress up and personalize a box of Sweethearts conversation hearts. 
I used the adorable Tiddly Inks Digi
(this is a picture of it closed)

I enlarged the image
so that the owl would take up most of my 1 1/2" circle die

This is also for the
Fusion Challenge #3
I chose the photo as my inspiration ... Valentine, heart and box. 
My project is a Valentine, I made a heart embellishment and covered a box of conversation hearts.

Here it is unlatched.
I used the faux wood technique to make my sleeve look like a tree trunk. 
Made my own embellishment (heart) by punching out a heart of white card, colored with Copics and covered with Glossy Accents. 
I do have glue dots at the top and bottom of the box holding the sleeve on.
I sponged color onto the green scallop circle using Tim Holtz ink and blender tool.
I made my own sentiment, cut it up and popped it up.
