Gecko Galz & Basic Grey Very Valentines Challenge & RRR Challenge

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a great day!
It is the 15th, which means it is time for a new Challenge & A Blogversay Give Away at 
Really Reasonable Ribbon
and our theme is 
Valentine's Day or Love & Ribbon!

Gecko Galz is also having a Challenge this month as well as a Sale of Buy One Get One Free.

The Design Team at Gecko Galz has paired up with Basic Grey and have used the new "True Love Digital Paper Pack"  with the New Ephemera from Gecko Galz to create some beautiful Valentine inspiration pieces, which you can see here.

The Challenge for you is for you to create a Valentine's Day Project using Basic Grey & Gecko Galz!  Then email a photo of it to by Dec 31, 2014 and the winner will be announced on Feb 14th and will win the "True love Digital PP" from Basic Grey & $25 Gift Certificate to Gecko Galz!!
Here is my project below.
I created a cute little match box.  I created a I was able to make it bigger than a normal matchbook.  I used the True love PP from Basic Grey for my box base, and lots of their elements from the True Elements Pack #4 to embellish the box as well as the ephemera Valentine Wishes set from Gecko Galz.
I used some fabulous Ribbons and trims from RRR!!  The Peppermint Baker's Twine, Pink dot organza, Pink Double Ruffle, Pink leaves, Pink Cottage Rose and Ivory mulberry roses, which you can see on the front of my project above.
I used my Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip to add glue to my piece.  I used  #208 Fauna#349 Garnet#287 Arbor and #144 Miss Muffet glitters.  My focal image on the front is from Gecko Galz Young Love Collage Sheet.
Here is the back...which I ended up liking just as much as the front...LOL
I used some of the Red sheer with satin center organza peeking out from my super cute image from the For my handle I used my new favorite Rose Silky Crush Ribbon.  Here is a couple other views
