Christmas advent event - day 7

Good morning! Brrrr ... It's really cold here today. And it's supposed to get even colder over the weekend. I don't think I'll do anything except staying inside under the blanket with a cup of tea or cocoa. And of course do some crafting. ;)

It's day 7 of our Christmas advent event at CRPI blog and our today's sponsor is Marianne design and there's the wonderful prize you canwin if you leave your info with the linky ...

I made this box ...

It's made out of white cardstock. I inked the edges with TH distress ink. On top and bottom I added some red cardstock which I punched with my border punch. Over it I glued this lovely ric rac ribbon from Crafty ribbons. I used my craft punch for the small snowflakes which I then glued on the sides and back of the box. I decorated the front with Spellbinders scalopped circle and circle dies and Marianne designs snowflake die. I embossed the circle with Cuttlebug swiss dots EF and I decorated the scalopped circle with crystals from my stash.

I'd like to enter this box to the following challenges:
Oozak: Anything goes + red
Simon says: Snowflakes
The ribbon girl: Christmas
Die cuttin' divas: Holiday spirit
Freshly brewed: Christmas

Are you wondering what will I put inside this box? I decorated some candles to give out as Christmas presents. If you haven't trythis yet, go for it, it's super easy to do. This is the candle I made for my grandma ...

On the front you can see the cute angel image from LOTV and under it I wrote the name of my grandma (Minka) with G studio stamps. I colored the image with Faber Castell pencils. You can't see this in the picture, but I covered angel's wings with diamond Stickles and on the wreath I added pearls with Viva decor pearl pen. On the back of the candle I added the sentiment "Vesele praznike!"(this is slovenian for "happy holidays").

I would like to enter my candle to the following challenges:
Crafts and me: Anything goes (optional: Christmas ornament)
Anything but a card: Anything Christmas but a card
Bizzy Becs: Christmas
Deep ocean: So this is Christmas
Fussy and fancy: I love Christmas
Shopping our stash: Winter holiday or snow/winter theme
Whimsy: Anything goes so long as it's festive
