My Pink Designers: Pink & Love Theme & Giveaway

Welcome to our My Pink Designers Design Challenge!!  Robyn gave us designers the challenge to use the color Pink and the theme is Love this month.  I decided to make a Love Notes Box.  I decorated the box an made 4 coordinating cards to fit in the box.
The box is one of the recipe boxes from Michaels in the dollar bins.  I just covered it with red & pink card stock & did a little pen stitching just to add a little something.  I added some pink & white polka dot ribbon around the cover with a faux bow & added a heart button to the center of the bow.
The cupid is from Celebrate with Flourish, cut @ 3" in pink, dk pink, & white.  I added some doodle dots to it too.
For the front of the box, I welded the hearts & blocks with letters to spell out Love Notes from Simply Sweet.  I cut  them again, hiding the letters for the coordinating color to show through.  I also cut them twice out of cereal boxes & layered them to give some dimension.
 The cards are all basically the same except for the image.  The base of the cards are pink (embossed using the Cuttlebug & Duff's (The Ace of Cakes) Texture Tiles.  The red strip is  embossed using the Cuttlebug & the Polka Dots (5x7) embossing folder.  I added the ribbon with 2 knot bows.  The pink & red hearts are from Simply Sweet.  I used My Pink Stamper's "Happiest Moments"  Stamp Set.
I will be giving away 1 set of My Pink Stamper's "Love A Licious" Stamp Set. This is the other set we are highlighting for this challenge.  (Continental U.S. mailing only).  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with a way for me to contact you.  I comment please.  I will post the winner on Saturday.
Snail:  Create A Critter
 Squirrel:  Create A Critter
 Panda:  Pagoda
 Zebra:  Create A Critter

I so wish I had a Michaels near me. I can only go when we go to the city. No just jumping in the car and running an errand. I see so many statements about their dollar bin and get jealous.
