Sweet "Thinking of You" Box

Hello dear friends!  I'm back.  I haven't been here all week.  Shame on me!  My muse was taking a break I think.  But we got together again this weekend.  I have this project and other one started!
This time I have a project for the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's where we have to use our favorite color combo.  My son, Josiah came in my studio when I was just sitting down to work on this project.  He asked if I was starting a new card.  I told him this challenge and he said: Oh, so, green and purple?  lol  I told him he was right  :)  Those are my favorite colors!  I used Avery's Big Flower.  I've used her several times now.  She is just so sweet.
I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils.  And of course I sewed the layers together.
This is the front, but the whole thing isn't a card.  I used the sketch from CLP and...
 turned the small image rectangle into the card and mounted it to the outside of my box.
See?  I decorated the inside of the box.  I love the DP.  I have one sheet left.  I'm trying to make it go as far as possible  :)  I made the flower for the outside.  It's been a long time since I made roses from ribbon.  It was fun, but strange to be gluing them to my card.  They were always sewn to fabric before.  They turned out pretty good I think for being so out of practice!
Here's a shot from the side.
And the back (or bottom).

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sassy Cheryl's - Favorite Color Combo
CLP - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - Anything
City Crafter Challenge Blog - A Rose is a Rose
Ribbon Carousel - Make Your Own Flowers
Top Tip Tuesday - Dig Out the Old (My ribbons and rose making skill go waaaaay back!)
That's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs,
