Another Post Box

Quite a lot of sketch challenges have a circle mat for the main image and most of my coloured up images either haven't enough room round them to cut out a circle or their better fitted in square or rectangles.
But I overcome this with the Molly Blooms Post Box and overlapped the circle and placing the image off centre.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out, the snowflake embossing is a Sizzix folder and snowflakes and border are Martha Stewart, the sketch is Sketch Saturday this week. A lot of stickles and gems later it was finished although I feel it needs a sentiment somewhere but not sure where.
