Monday What a Great Day!!

Well, I found out today I was one of the Top 3 from the Sketch and Stash Challenge that ended this week. Woohoo!! I was very surprised to find out. Thank you Sketch and Stash and Thank You Cathy!

I have another project to post today to
DPS Challenge -Anything but a Card
Papertake Weekly Challenge -Grow Your Own

It is not a card but a match box I made with a Sizzix Big Shot Pro die, it is approximately 5 1/4" by 3 1/2". I really like this die. The flowers are also a Sizzix Bigz die 3D Flowers (not the pro die) and the foliage is a Sizzlits die.

The image is a Mo's Digital Pencil image, Shy Valentine Nessa, she is stamped on Cryogen cardstock and colored with Copics.
This shows the box with the inside pulled out. I added a butterfly punched with an EK Success three step punch and put Star Dust and Cinnamon Stickles on the top and middle punch outs. The pp is All Seasons by The Paper Studio, cardstock is old SU Passion Pink, the ribbon is SU white organza, red and green cardstocks are from my stash.
Nessa is colored with Copics, skin E000, E00, E21, R20; hair B32, C3, C7, C9; heart R22, R24, R27, R29; dress R81, R83, blender; lace, ribbon, bow C00, C1; shoes C00, C1, C3, C5; socks R81, blender. I added Glossy Accents to her shoes and heart hair ties and Star Dust Stickles to her ruffles.
I added Diamond Stickles to the roses on the inside and the sentiment is stamped with an SU stamp and heat embossed with SU clear embossing powder over Stampabilities Real Red pigment ink. These are all made with the Sizzix 3D Flower die. For the rosebud I just used a portion of the cut out and cut some green to go around it. I adhered the rosebud to the foliage, it is raised on the end.
This is a close up of the front of the box.
This is both parts of the box. It looks a little wonky on here, not sure why, maybe the photographer.

Well that's it for today. I hope everyone has had a great Monday and will have a great rest of the week.
I will try to get another project posted this week but I have to go back to Lubbock this week for a doctor's appointment on Wednesday and then to Roswell on Thursday to see if anyone has signed up for the class on August 27.
