Pile It On- Chipboard

Happy Sunday,
Time for another Pile It On challenge and this time it's chipboard.

Of course Pile It On means adding other challenges too so I have a few for you here.

Roses on Paper had the theme of "Alter Something" (and use a stamp brand they sell)\
Magnolia Down Under wanted to be "Bedazzled"
Just Magnolia had the theme "It's Christmas"
Magnolialicious wanted a shaped card (well this isn't a card but it certainly is shaped!)
Scrap Stamp and Doodle also wanted a shaped project
Practical Scrappers wanted "Anything Christmas"
Everybody Art wanted Red and Green
Stamp With Sarah Kay wanted Red and Green too
My Time To Craft wanted "Christmas Foliage"
Gingersnaps wanted you to use Sandpaper and I sanded the Plaid embossing behind the image
Nutcrafters want to see Ribbon along with a stamp from any line they sell in their store.

Instead of using a chipboard accent on the project I actually use a chipboard box as my base for this altered project.
I won't say how close to tears I go with this one as it just wouldn't go right and I ended up changing this to make them work. I had painted the outside and then none of my glues would work to adhere the ribbon I chose to the outside. So I had to scrap the ribbon idea and go with paper on the outside and a different ribbon on top.
It almost ended up in the trash but I wanted to finish it and now it's done :)
The Ornament paper on the lid is The Paper Studio and one on the side is My Minds Eye.
The Poinsettias are from a garland I bought at Hobby Lobby.
I stamped Unwrapped Tilda on some off white cardstock as white looked too stark against the dp. Then I colored her wth Copic's.
I cut a piece of Coredinations cardstock with a Label Nestie and embossed it with the Plaid Cuttlebug folder from the HSN Holiday pack.
The sentiment is 7 Gypsies and I added $1 spot rhinestones to the lid and around the base too.

Here is a view straight on and Tilda looks so cute!

Here's a close up of Tilda.

You can see the decoration on the sides here.
I hope you can join in the fun over at Pile It On and find time for a little more creating before Christmas!
