I couldn't resist making this for Toni's DTGD challenge. I don't typically make a lot of 3D projects because I find them hard to use, but I'm sure I can tuck a little gift into this and find a home for it. This fun week is our thanks to all the Fan Club members who support SCS through their subscriptions.

The matchbox was made with one my cling-wrap backgrounds for the outer wrapper and the box liner. The box is just generic yellow card.
I made the miniature tree frog from an old Klutz book.
I didn't have a good pink for the peony so I mixed up some Perfect Pearls and some picked raspberry re-inker with water and misted all the petals with that after I'd cut them from a pale pink Bazzill. I was able to shape them while they were still slightly damp, which helped. For the flower centre I did something which I have seen Lorraine (Pidgesmom) do, and I even have cards from her with it. She takes the thinnest sliver of coloured card and cuts it into tiny itty bitty pieces. It worked really well for the peony stamens, because they weren't in the Sizzix instructions but I think that orange-yellow contrast is such a feature in so many of them that I wanted to include it.
