This is great! I love how you literally turned the matchbox upside down and inside out. But I still can't figure out how the box with the photo, which seems to have four sides, slides over the metal heart on the back of the matchbox sleeve. Or is the heart's 3-dimensionality an optical illusion?

Wulf - The sliding matchbox doesn't have a "top" to it...its just got the 3 sides. That way its slides freely down past the heart.

I had the idea of using a similar phrase from the beginning (then found a friend's boyfriend, he's Puerto Rican, to translate for me). Because of the heart and home element, I needed to do something in the shape of a house. At first I was going to do doors that open out, but decided it wasn't enough of a reveal that way. Also, it didn't keep it "matchbook"-ish enough for me that way.

Ahhhh! I FINALLY have got it straight (upside down) in my head! The "drawer" is really inverted, and, when closed, rests with the photograph side right next to the 3D heart, and the "Tu corazon" side facing up to the viewer......

I think?....?

Right...the drawer is essentially "face down" so what was originally the bottom of it, is now the front.

Basic Grey gets the credit for the color combos...I used one of their older lines...Blush, I think.
