Sketchy Colors #98 and a mailbox for Christmas cards♥

It's  Sunday again, and Sketchy Colors #98  is ready for a new, and final challenge for this  year,
This time you've to choose the color combi, that you liked best in Sketchy Colors challenges

The prize is so gorgeous, and we have been  fortunate to been sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps (thank you so much Lynette), 
They give 1 winner a gift Certificate value 15$!!

However, beside these colors, you MUST follow the sketchMarianne have made for you, and then make it "twice as fun challenge":)
You may participate in the challenge all the way until the 7th of January, and then you may be the lucky winner of the great price sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps:)
I've chose to make a mailbox, (I've found the tutorial HERE), in earth colors, and after the great sketch - hope you enjoy it!:)
This mailbox is one of several boxes that I'll give my sisters in law, as a Christmas present♥
 These beautiful DP are from Pion Design-Ventan på tomten"Vinterlek"
 and the image is a digi from Mo Manning, coloured with Copic's.

Snowflake border and leaf from Tim H. dies, flowers and lace from WOC!
The Christmas tree, on the sidepanel is from a Marianne Design dies, and the smaller snowflake are from a Magnolia die. All the snowflake and flowers have been attached with Glitter.Star dust

I LOVE these beautifuul DP, from Pion♥'-"vinterlek".

 I've bee sewing all the panels with my sewing machine, and distressed all the edges with Distress ink.Walnut Stain:)

 Sentiments from Tim Holtz, and I've punched the mailbox-lock edge with Martha Stewart punch.

On the backsiden I've stamped a Christmas sentiments, from Kort og Godt.

"Urchin with bird".
