DDCC ~ Photo INspiration

Hi Guys!
Well it's not actually my team's turn to post this week at Dutch Dare but when I saw the photo the other side of the team was using for this week's challenge I couldn't resist making a  little somthin somethin.
Here's the photo:

And like I said on Tuesday, you all would be seeing another tissue box in a few days and here it is! This one was actually my first one but I had to save it for the DDCC challenge. It's my daughter's fave colors so I made it for her.
The images are A Day For Daisies. I paper pieced them and colored the rest with Prismacolors.
And the paper is DCWV cardstock and SEI DPs.
The punch is Martha Stewart.
The tissues are Kleenex with lotion. lol
For a note about the tutorial and sizing and shout outs etc please see my post on Tuesday here
Thank you everyone who placed me in the right direction so I could make this.

More views and close ups:

OK, so lots of pictures! Didn't mean to bore you but a tissue box has many sides!!
I hope you can play along with Dutch dare this week.
 Its such an awesome inspirational photo to work off of!

I thought I already commented on this awesome bow, but realized It was because I've already seen it! Still perfect though. It is so her and her colors. Love the paper piercing. Love my box too! I needed it today, had a Cody moment! Anyway it is a fun project!
