Valentine's Day Mailbox

I am on vacation from work for a few days and I finally got a chance to do some crafting! I was inspired by the design team over at Peachy Keen Stamps because they all did these cute little Valentine's Day mailboxes. I went ahead and picked one up myself while I was at Target today. I really like how it turned out and now I am so tempted to pick up some more and use them for other holidays as well. I think it's going to make a really cute gift tin... now just to figure out what gift I am going to put in it lol. Here is what I used:

red mailbox from Target's dollar spot
Peachy Keen's Pk-570 Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment stamp set
My Creative Time's "You Had Me at Chocolate" stamp set
K and Company KP Valentine Paper Pad
Core'dinations Cardstock
D'vine Swirls and Swiss dot Cuttlebug embossing folder
sticky heart and heart jewels from the "Heart Accessory Pack" - on clearance at Michael's
black ribbon from Michael's
Once Upon A Princess cartridge for the doll
Gypsy Wanderings cartridge for the scalloped oval
Sweet Treat cartridge for the circle scallops and for the hearts

These are the challenges I have entered it in:
