A Debalicious sketch to share

Welcome to another week at MDUC, and this challenge is a brilliant one, we have a sketch created by out very own Debbie P!! I loved this sketch and used it to finish a project I had been planning for quite a while, a box to keep my wedding tiara and jewellery in. Ta-Da! I was thrilled with how it came out. The box was one of those cardboard kraft ones I picked up in spotlight, I did think about painting it but I am going through such a kraft phase I thought it would be the perfect background. This Tilda and Edwin were actually stamped for me aaaaaages ago but the fabulous Kellie, I even coloured them up to go with these papers months and months ago and then thought I would save them and the paper until I have a brilliant idea for a card, then I decided they would look fabulous on the box, and then when I saw Deb's sketch I knew I had finally found my inspiration for my box top!! Don't you love it when a plan comes together!!
So... the paper, doilies and doohickey are all from Tickled Pink Stamps, where you can also choose from a huge selection of Magnolia stamps too! The flowers are from my stash and the crystals, ribbon and ric rak I picked up in spotlight... oh, and the rub on in the corner is from kaiser.
Anyways, bit of a waffle there about the box, sorry guys, I am off now to get my hair ready (I am typing this Saturday evening so I can schedule it) it's my hen's night tonight so I should go and attempt to pretty myself up, hahaha! I had my make up trial this morning to see how the make up would go over the day/night, then we were invited last minute to a 4th birthday party this morning, so I showed up looking particularly glamorous, lol, maybe I should have whacked the tiara in as well, just to complete the look!
Hmmm... 3 weeks until the big day, not really overly excited or nervous yet, I think I am more focused on getting everything organised, then I can really let myself go and totally freak out, bahahaha!! We are stuck on what song to play as we enter the reception, if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it. I want to walk in to the new Pink song because it makes me laugh, but it really isn't a 'wedding' kind of song, I guess I just love the idea of a song celebrating all of us who are "wrong in all the right ways", it's so me :)

So... I thought I might also enter this little boxy into a couple of challenges...
