Not a Card!

Hi Everyone,
Well it's been another flat out week , and thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!
I have been trying to finish this project all week and finally got there today, MDUC this week asked for a colour combo of Pink , Orange and White, rather groovy I think lol.
I haven't done anything like this before , but I picked up this little box at the reject shop for $4 and decided to give it a go, it's for my daughter , she is always loosing bobby pins and hair clips , so I made this for all her pins and things to be in one place! Hopefully .......
It's a wooden box with a glass panel in the top where I have used DP , Doily and Tilda.
This is the inside, which I kept pretty simple, because it's for pins.
Here is a side view, I have used a Cherry Lynn Die and some ribbon from my stash.
This beautiful wood flourish is from Make it Crafty and was a free gift when I placed an order recently, I have painted it with Kaisercraft Hot Pink .

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Magnolia Down Under Challenge #135 - Colour Combo Pink , Orange & White
Allsorts Challenge Blog - It's your choice

I don't have a recipe for this little box , I didn't even write down the copic markers I used,
as I said before it's been one of those weeks, we have had a sick dog and it's been a real worry , but I think he has turned a corner now and is on the road to recovery.
I hope you are all well and happy out there in blog land, and thanks for stopping by and leaving me such wonderful and kind comments.

PS. Have you seen the amazing candy Jacque has on her blog!!!! Check it out here on the top right hand side bar and follow the link.
