Box for Wedding Cards

I made this box for wedding cards for the wedding I made stationery for.

I used a basket with a lid that I bought from Dunelm. I used a Sue Wilson die to die cut the elements that are attached to the lining on the box. The is the same die that I used for the invitations. I attached these with my hot glue gun and then attached pink satin ribbon along the top of the die cuts and then added the pearl embellishments. I used the satin ribbon to tie lengths between the top and base so the top will stand up. I then added more of the fancy die cuts and satin ribbon diagonally across the top. I printed the letters individually and die cut them using the Die'sire Create a Card Stacey Base nesting dies. I cut the two tone pinks in the next sizes in the set. I attached the Marianne die cut above the letters and then trimmed the edge before attaching all the layers together. I then added the pearl embellishments with hot glue. The letters match the place settings and the table numbers.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
