matchbox challenge - the antique one

 Have you been enjoying the snow this week?....I was hoping for a 'snow day' off work, but only a light covering around here, probably a good thing really.

 I hope you have been joining in with The Lobster and Swan matchbox a day challenge set by Jeska. Today is the 'antique one' I have made mine decorated with gold paper, vintage lace, a piece of a hand written french letter and a beautiful stamp. Inside are hidden mother of pearl buttons and beads.
I'm not sure if I can make one for every day of February, but I love making them and seeing what other people have created.

Remember Jeskas'  is selling her lovely matchboxes for charity in her etsy shop.
