Altered Jewelry Box

Hi Folks, here i am with another creation but before i share it i would like to wish all our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving!! 

My creation is an altered jewelry box which i sanded down, painted and applied Prima papers, Prima chipboard frame, sorry i can't remember where i got the stamp from, Gold ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, recycled lace net and red berries, my own handmade pin, WOC cherry blossoms, TH diecut key, pearls and cream ribbon from my stash made into bows and a doily to finish it all off. I hope you like my little altered creation!!
