A Purple Christmas Box

Here's a box I found a tutorial for some time ago, but haven't dared to try to make it 'till now. 
It wasn't difficult alt all!
Actually I had a real fun time making it.
To decorate it I found some of my oldest Magnolias (from the time they almost didn't have any hair :) ).
I used different Lucia-Magnolias on each side of the box. They're all coloured with ProMarkers.
The images and embellishments are all attached to an oval (die from Nellie's) before they're fastened to the box.
Embellishments are lace, cheesecloth, Liquid Pearls and swirls (Spellbinders die).
On top of the box I placed a greeting (Kort & Godt). The circle that the greeting is stamped on is made with a die-set from Nellie's too. The little stars (or is it flowers?) that I've put pearls in the middle of is a part of that Nelli's-dieset (but sold separately).
I got my set from Maja some time ago.
I've also used DistressInk WalnutStain on all paper- and paneledges.
...and Glimmermist, lots of Glimmermist :)

Here's a few more pictures of the box, from different angles:
