40th Wedding anniversary gift box

Hello everybody,

Today I'd like to show you a box I made for my hubby's aunt and uncle who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary next Saturday. I'm pretty sure they don't follow me on my blog or Facebook so I think it's OK to show it already :).
The image that I used is by a company that's new to me, JustInkLined, it's called Ted and Agnes. I went searching for images and showed a couple to my hubby and a little to my disappointment he kept saying he liked this one best. I had hoped to make a more romantic box and was a little scared of working with this image but since it's his aunt and uncle and he insisted they'd love a funny image I decided that it'd have to be this one. The sentiment is computer generated and in Dutch but probably speaks for itself.
A close up of Ted and Agnes. As always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced.
A sideview of the box. I have no idea where I bought this box, it's been in my cupboard for a while waiting to be used. Now wish I had another because I think it's perfect for an occasion like this one.
A close up of the pretty Wild Orchid Crafts embellishments.

And the little pieces the image was made of. There were lots of little pieces :). I didn't take down the Copic numbers I'm afraid but if you have a specific question I'm sure I can tell you what Copic markers were used, just let me know.
I hope you like my box but more importantly, I hope the celebrating couple will next Saturday when we give it to them on their party. Have a great day everybody!!
