Fun with Gecko Galz Papercraft Challenge Group - Entry Number One

Today I'm sharing the first of my monthly entries into the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Challenge Group on Facebook.  Each month there are several fun challenges to enter, all with different themes.  You can enter as many times as you want for the opportunity to win free collage sheets.  
First up is my entry into the "Not A Card" challenge.  I altered this little wooden purse I got at Michael's a while back.  It's small,  with the work space (not including the handles) just short of 4 x 4 inches.  I covered the box with the brand new Valentine themed digital papers from My Artistic Adventures, using matte Mod Podge to adhere the paper.  The papers are gorgeous, and there are more matching paper sets in other patterns now available in the store.  The Vintage Valentine image is from the Gecko Galz - Very Vintage Valentine collage sheet.  I added a few laces and embellishments from my stash to complete, and I used my new heart shaped doily die from spellbinders.

I wish to enter this into the following challenges:
