Valentine's candlebox

I found these adorable scented candles yesterday and decided to make giftboxes for Valentine's. I distressed plain white paper with victorian velvet, vintage photo and milled lavender, embossed it with Budding vine from Craft concepts and sprayed with perfect pearls gold. And I thought I would beat my own record on amount of challenges since it's that time of the year =).
