Altered Fudge Tin

This tin started off as an empty fudge tin, and after a lot of faffing around on my part, I've transformed it into a pretty trinket tin. I've used green cardstock along with an olive colour whitewash coredinations card, which has been embossed with cuttlebug folder divine swirls, and then sanded to reveal the lovely olive core.
The flower and swirls were sent to me by my lovely friend Sarah :)

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
