Pretty pink altered box

My sister in law got a new phone, I loved the box it came it. It is so thick and sturdy, and it had a gap where the lid met the bottom part. So I had some ideas to decorate it. 
So this is what I came up with.
This is the top

side

inside

Heres a close up, I adore this little cameo and shiny pink rosettes I got from Lavish Laces etsy shop.
You can see the stenciled texture on here. I ran out of texture paste and cant afford any right now so I made my own. It was 1\4 cup talcum powder, white glue and white paint and a just a  little water till its the consistency you want. Didnt cost me a dime lol. The papers are from Lost and Found. 

Challenges:
Charisma Cardz-fav color combo (when doing vintage I love pink and cream)

Oh your so clever my dear..

Beautiful what you make from a box deco.

I bet you were the child who had toys but you would rather play in the box. My kids were like that.

Then their kids the same. I mean children.

Kids are Goates.


Sorry .
