Multiple Challenges for Just the One Valentine

I made a Valentine's card recently for my OH.  I posted it here.   Then I needed a box in which to place my gift to him.   I wanted my box to coordinate so I have used all the same papers which are K&Co and kept to Magnolia images coloured in Copics, adding images to only two sides and decorating the lid. There are lots of flowers from various sources, some punched hearts and button hearts and a ribbon wrapped around the lid.  Hubby is always complaining that I keep a huge crate stuffed full of what I consider to be good boxes, all of which are empty.  He didn't complain when I gave him his valentine's card and gift!    The first two images are the side views.  It's a dull ol' day today so I apologise for the picture quality!

I am entering my box into the following challenges
Cute Card Thursday - Hearts and flowers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything but a card
Stamp Something - Something for your Valentine
Winter Wonderland - To the one I love
One Stop Craft  - Love is in the air
Totally Gorjuss - Love
Cupcake Craft  - I You (incorporating at least one heart)
Kaboodle Doodles - Hearts and flowers

And this is the lid.
I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday, shared with someone you love!

Oh Lesley, this is BEAUTIFUL. I absolutely love the Tilda's you've used, I think I have one, but I need the other and the labels die you've used too. I hope OH appreciated this, because it's gorgeous, I cannot drool enough.
Thanks also for your very kind comments, I very much appreciate you taking the time to leave them.

Lovely box and card! It's also lovely that your hubby appreciates it! Mine isn't keen on anything frilly, heck anything not minimalist isn't to his taste - so he didn't get a card this year! *lol*
He made me one but I better not show that *g*
Seriously gorgeous work and thanks for sharing, can't wait to see you again soon!
Love, Alex
