Altered trinket box

Hi everyone!  I have a fun Mixed Media Spellbinders project to share today.  This one is a bit outside the box for me (haha).  You can find this and many other inspirational Spellbinders creations in their Idea Gallery!

I started with a wooden trinket box measuring 5¾ x 3¾ x 4".  I covered each side of the box with white linen paper.  I then added some pattern paper from FabScraps.  For the top of the bos, I layered roses from Rose Creations dies spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  I nested Standard Circles SM and Venetian Motifs dies in Silver Premium Craft Foil to create an open frame and accents from Venetian Motifs to add around the flowers. The words are from Girlie Grunge Labels sponged with gold ink.
The front uses a cut/embossed Grand Decorative Ovals One with the excess trimmed off.  And the finishing touches are a button, more Want2Scrap pearls and an accent piece from Venetian Motifs.
 This project was definitely a labor or love.  It took me a LONG time (read 2 days) to work out the details on this, but I love the final result and it was well worth it!  Thanks for stopping by and here is a close up picture of the roses and flourishes details.
