altered key box

Hi all
 Here is a wooden box i have altered with papers from trimcraft first edition family ties papers.thay are beautiful quality ,some double sided and some glitered and embossed...lush.
the box is from .cc-craft.. I handmade the flowers using a tim Holtz tattered floral die and added stitched grosgrain ribbon and pearls from meiflower crafts.
The banner is made using a stampin up punch and the edge punch is also from stampin up . The little foam letters i have had for years  from a pound store. I quite like seeing some of the wooden structure so i did not cover the whole box in papers just the large panels was easier and neater this way
