Tickled Pink Box meets The Sketchy Challenge

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
So excited the Christmas Tree goes up in a couple of days, whoop whoop, don't you love getting in the Christmas spirit :)

I recently made a lovely 8 x 8 card with some of the new gorgeous Tickled Pink Images, and then had to buy me some more lol xx

So needing a box to put this creation in I used the same papers and one of my new images to create this little number

I used the sketch from The Sketchy Challenge 

The view from the top
Now the base layer is a burgundy pearlescent with oh those papers that I have had ages, so sorry never remember what they were.  The image has been die cut out with the next to small circle grand, the shaping for the large circle is the largest of the grand dies.  Pearls from the Hobby House, flowers in the main from Wild Orchid and the sentiment is my own fair hand, I used a versa mark pen and then wet embossed with gold, not bad for my tacky hand writing.  Over sprayed with gold glitter lacquer and the distressing and over stamping with TH Antique Linen.  The ribbon around the sides was for wrapping Xmas presents from Lidl dead cheap a bargain and lots on the real.

Here is a 3d view
The side view, little golden balls and snowflakes on the twin ribbon
The hand created sentiment
and finally the copic coloured image with a little liquid appliqué and clear glitter sakuro pen

Now if you have not noticed, although I am sure you have my new 600 follower candy has been posted and you can enter this here . I would like to welcome all my new followers  and wish all my followers luck in the 600 follower candy.   Just have to say you are all awesome thrilled to be over the 700 mark and looking forward to more candy buying:)
