First go at Altering a box!

Hey there...........here is my first attempt at altering something! This was a box of loveheart sweets that I gave to Hubby for his birthday..........very soppy I ordered them online and they were all printed with "I Love You"!

And here it is altered! I am really pleased with how it came out, I themed the colours to match my bedroom...think I will keep my earrings in it!
I have used My Gorjuss Girl......again! All the papers are old ones that I have had for ages. I have stamped the lilac paper with little swirls..not very clear in the photo and I have scrunched up the grey paper.........the girl is coloured with promarkers Ameythst and Cool Grey and I also used the Ameythst to clour the lace.A paper flower and some little silver ones that I have had kicking about for yonks some pearls and diamonds to finish it off!
Another little GG on the inside and some little swirls around the edges which don't show up in the photo and that is it! Please let me know what you think!:)

I have a little wooden treasure chest that I am gonna have a go at next! Could really get into this!!
Thanks for looking and any comments are greatly appreciated!!

Hiya Jane, such a lovely box! really like the colours you've used and image is gorjuss!! hehe, i'm really sorry but it is a rule at Charisma that only new work can be accepted for the challenges, we all hope to see what you could come up with (maybe have another go at another box!!)
