Altering a box full of numbers

I've made a moneybox for the  Gingersnapcreations - random redhead - numbers challenge. I took a tin box with plastic lid and decorated it with some of my favorit scrap paper. I found a left over stamp from one of my trips and put on the lid. The letters I made with the help of  Elisabeth's Epic six machine and alphabet.
It says in norwegian , moneybox , the number are my birthday and some random numbers.
First i covered the whole box and lid with white gesso, when this was dyr I started to put the paper on and painted the lid with brown dabber. I've used Decoupage glue from Europris to glue everything on. THe only thing I bought new specially for this box is the Glossy picture from Crafty Individuals - ( It comes in sheets with 12 individual pictures, this is from sheet : Life Journey 1 )
Her with the lid open and ready to put some scrap money in.
Have a beautiful saturday, I'm of shopping with KortKari..Yes we are gonna visit a few local craftshops.
