Pink Saturday

Here is an altered matchbox I finished! It was first totally covered with different lace, and embellished with lush pinks - fabric flowers, paper flowers, lace pieces, bling, pearl trim, stick pins and a beautiful butterfly I purchased from Michael's.
Linking my matchbox to Pink Saturday!
You can visit Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound to see more beautiful Pinks!
Happy Pink, Fran
