Birthday Box and The Sweet Stop Sketch

**Update I am so excited that my box was selected as Top Three at Craft Us Crazy.  Thank You!!**
Today I wanted to share a box I made for my aunt for her birthday. Happy Birthday Val!! I decided she needed something nice to hold a gift card and maybe get some use out of.  I was also able to use this weeks sketch from The Sweet Stop SSS95, you gotta love a two for one:)  I must say I am very happy with the way this turned out.  I so love these beautiful digi stamps from Sugar Nellie and you will definitely be seeing some more from me.  This sweet little girl is named Joy Sitting from the Simply Adorable line and you can find her HERE.
The image was colored with  Copics and I pulled the colors from my papers to ground her which I think ended up looking like she is sitting on the beach.  The sentiment is from Paper Makeup which says "You Make The World A Better Place" I could not get a picture without the flower casting a shadow on it, sorry.  This paper that worked out perfectly with Joy is from Kaisercraft Gypsy Sister.  The lace is from The Paper Studio and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
Copics
Hair-E25, E50, E31 Sweater-R89 ,R85, R83, RV17 Dress-BG13, BG11, BG10
 Background- B000, E41, E42
It was very difficult to find challenges that aren't related to Valentine's Day but I did manage to find a few, woohoo.
Challenges

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
