Altered jewellery box

Before I pimped it, it was a simple black little box.  

The background paper has been made by spraying two colors glimmermist onto paper, and while wet, laying household foil on top of it until dry. It gives beautiful patterns, and because of the glimmer, a beautiful shine. I stamped the text with versamark, and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The sides of the box were also done by heat embossing with gold embossing powder. 
It's ready for a little gift now...
