Mermaid Beauty Matchbox

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.

I would like to enter this altered matchbox in the following challenges:

Milk Coffee - summer fun
Jelly Park - seaside
2CuteInk - #109 beach
Allsorts - #265 summer girls
Sentimental Sunday - #213 summer
Sisters of Craft - anything goes
Fan-tastic Tuesday - #42 anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
