Painted decorative papers, died lace and "Artisans de Provence" label from a box of beautiful soaps I received as a gift
Matchbox painted in metallic acrylic, distressed with ink and highlighted with glitter
Interior holds a piece of toile fabric, Swarovski crystals and beads and a stamped and hand-written scroll on printed paper

Kristin, I love this little matchbox! As I am going thru your older posts I am learning that you like glitter and sparkle. Yay! The world is a better place with glitter on it! Thank you again for your nice comment you left on my new blog. I will post a link to you when I'm done browsing...sparkle on!
