Alter something and anything but a card

At Try It On Tuesday the challenge is to alter something so I went straight to my collection of empty boxes and have used one that had a jar of face cream in it. To add texture, which is part of the challenge, I used silver embossing powder on the whole box and it really shines but has a nice pitted finish as well. Then I added ribbon and the lovely piece of jewelery I won as part of some blog candy.

I would also like to enter this at Come and Get It as the challenge there is anything but a card.
