"cherish" altered box

I am back with my favourite altered project with the color theme too that i love...the fall or autumn colors! Love the look with browns, oranges, olive greens and yellows...
This box, I have altered for a friend who has supported my "art from scraps" initiative and has fondly collected a lot of scrap for me! This is one such plain red cardboard box which i decided to give a makeover...

I have used the PP from Recollections and distressed the edges with wild honey. The polks dotted paper goes so well with the brown dmask print and lends a very soft elegant look to the box.
The oval frame is a negative given to me by my crafting friend and I have heat embossed the edges in gold and heavily inked it too! The inside layer of olive green paper too has been run thru a dotted embossing folder from Itsy Bitsy. The sentiment is haet embossed in black.

The blooms on the top of the box are handmade using Cheery Lynn Shasta Daisy with glitter bead centers and inked too.The blooms,the fall leaves and a few feathers complete the top.

The front of the box has cute blooms using Cheery Lynn  again,Small Heart Cutie the way the hearts "pop" out of the flower and also olive branches in brown!

The sentiment is heat embossed and the pearl button is hand made too! I have added a few pearl strips on the lid too.The Tim Holtz Leaves have all been spritzed with ink, crushed and dried and inked again to get the "fall Look".
The inside of the box to has panels of PP from Recollections and the edges are inked with wild honey.
So how do you "cherish" my "fall box" ???

Would love to hear your comments...

Until then, happy crafting and re-cycling!
