Allsorts - Outside the box

It's not that I'm cheap, but I always take an extra look at things around me to see if I can use them in the craft room. Sometimes the most ordinary thing can be used in new and creative ways. And that's why the challenge at Allsorts this week is to think outside the box - to use something that wasn't meant for crafting in the first place.
I took the foil wrapper from my favourite chocolate bar and embossed it. It works splendidly as a backing paper for the image - and the card smells delicious as an extra bonus, hehe!
