Pink Saturday!

Pink Saturday...gotta love it!

I recently participated in a matchbox swap hosted by
Heather of The Speckled Egg,
with a Spring Inspirations theme.
I have wanted to participate in one of Heather's swaps for months,
and always seemed just miss the sign-up date.
So I was so happy to make it into this one!

We embellished a large matchbox
and filled it with artgoodies for two swap partners.



and



I covered the box in a wallpaper print,
and used two of my favorite Pre-Raphaelite images.
The flowers are handmade of delicate glimmer-misted tissue paper,
and I embellished the box with vintage lace
and a little metal tag.

Inside I tucked in some vintage French text, vintage crepe paper,

some embellishments I made, images, a little ballerina,
and a vintage rosette, among others.

Thanks for stopping by!
Treat yourself to more pink loveliness at How Sweet the Sound!

Happy Pink ....... Sunday
So glad I visited your Blog as the matchboxes are right up my street.
Gorgeous. Funnily enough, yesterday I made a card with Soul of A Rose (Oxford Impressions' stamp) an absolute favourite image of mine.
Lovely if you visited my Blog, Adorn.
Wishes
Lynne
