Claims:
1. We claim the ornamental design for a container with domed inner cover, as shown and described.

Description:
The ornamental design of this invention is a container having a pop-up dispensing opening within a domed inner cover. The domed inner cover is covered by the container lid when the lid is closed. The dispensing opening within the domed inner cover comprises a flexible material with one or more slits through which sheets, such as wet wipes, are dispensed. The doomed inner cover is preferably pitched slightly toward the front of the container and with an oval-shaped window of a flexible material having a star-shaped slit configuration.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a container with domed inner cover, showing the new design with the lid open.

FIG. 2 is a top view of the container of FIG. 1 with the lid closed.

FIG. 3 is a bottom view of the container of FIG. 2.

FIG. 4 is a front view of the container of FIG. 2.

FIG. 5 is a rear view of the container of FIG. 2.

FIG. 6 is a left side view of the container of FIG. 2; and,

FIG. 7 is a right side view of the container of FIG. 2.
