The Stamp Man Challenge 15 - Oriental

Over at the Stamp Man the theme is Oriental for the challenge.(link to their blog is on my sidebar.
 Well, I only have one set of Oriental stamps (from Inkadinkadoo) so they had to come out to play.
I decided to try to do something a bit different this time so created this little gift box

 I stamped the lady in black stazon, masked the bottom and stamped a flower stamp along the base. I used Hazelnut, Mountain Rose, Juniper and gold alcohol inks to colour the box. A ribbon buckle with ribbon in gold and  Papermania square gems to finish the front. The lady was covered in glossy accents too. The side is stamped with a bamboo image from the same set as the lady.
For the back I used the same lady and flower stamps but added flowers instead of the buckle, with gem centres. Now to think of what to put inside it. Any ideas?
