Nugget tin for the color challenge

I got my nugget tins from Stampinsilvia yesterday and I was so excited. The mailman brought this huge box of baby wipes up to the door and hands it to me (I happened to be BY the front door at the time.) Being the curious soul I am, I look at the return address - it's Silvia - and I know EXACTLY what's in this giant box.
So today's Color Challenge is pinks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pinks... I'm generally not a fan of pinks all together - disperse the pinkness, please. But when I think of pink, I think of something girly... what's more girly than the Bella stamps? So I pulled out one of my newbies - Grumpabella (who looks like me in the morning) and decided to make her the star of my show today. Her robe is a piece of Chatterbox paper that I stamped on and cut it out.
**edit: it's after work**
I colored the rest of my Bella with Prismacolor pencils and used the tag corner punch to decorate the corners. It's layered on Basic Black and Rose Red cardstock. I added "Hot Lips" baubles from Stamping Bella to the corners, but they'd have shown their color better if they weren't on black cardstock. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Holiday Treats set, stamped in Rose Red. The band underneath my bella image is Pretty in Pink, 2 1/8" x 11" and scored at 3 5/8"; 4 5/8"; 8 1/4" and 9 1/4" The band won't be super snug when closed, but it stays in place around the tin.
The nuggets inside the tin are covered in Avery mailing labels stamped in Rose Red and Pretty in Pink. The stamp is also from Papertrey's Holiday Treats set. I love how there are stamps in a holiday set that you can use for "regular" occasions.
This became a gift for my boss today. A "just because I think you might need it" present.
