Hello I have something cute I made a couple days ago for my friend Rea. This is a matchbox that I altered. I always like to light up scented candles so I always have matches on hand.

I colored Tilda with Distress ReInkers, on watercolor paper. My papers are from Maja Design, these are the Summer line. I didn't add too much to this box, I didn't want to cover up my paper too much, I think you can still see the floral print pretty much.

Just a little bit of stickles on my image and all around the papers with stickles platinum.My flowers are from IamRoses, these got a good load of stickles too!

Do you see the crochet table cover? This was given to me by my 83 year old Grandmother, she is really good with needle work, I have a few other cherished treasures from her that I will share later on with you. Have a great day, I have to get the kids ready for swimming lessons!

What a lovely altered match box! This Tilda is so cute and gorgeously colored, Patricia! Rea will love this! I like the gauze you used behind Tilda and all the pretty roses and lace trim. Such a nice gift.
Hugs, Cami
