I used papers from the Gecko Galz La Isla Bonita set to cover the outside and inside of the matchbox. The mermaid is from the "little mermaid" jewel it set. I added a little turquoise paint to the edges. The matchbox is embellished with a piece of crochet lace I picked up at a thrift store, a small shell and glitter.
The Gecko Galz customer challenge this month is Beachy Keen Challenge July 1-29 (prize Pack; $15 GG shopping spree and Song In My Heart Scrapbooking Gift pack). Click on link for full details.
