Altered Gift Box

This was a small jewelry box that I'd had for many years. I made it for the bag charm - previous post. I embossed card and rubbed the raised edges with a bronze ink pad. The 'corner' and 'photo frame' are cut out of a bronze craft sheet. I've had it many years and bought from a little craft shop, no idea of the make, but it's a very thin and soft metal sheet. My photo is from a sheet I bought from Crafts U Print, I glazed over it.
 Sorry the photo's are of such poor quality..took them with my mobile (cell phone)

 Inside of box is also lined with embossed card. 
This is my second entry for 

Divas By Design Challenge ... Anything But A Card
