Vintage Dreams

Good morning Cupcake lovers! This week our lovely Denise has chosen the theme to be "Alter It!".

If you join the fun you'll have a chace to win 4 digital images from our generous sponsor Pink Gem Designs!!!

Not to forget our three monthly icing on the cake sponsors; Crafts U Love (£15 Gift Voucher), Mo's Digital Pencil ($10 Gift Code), Sew Sweet (£10 Gift Voucher)!

Please check our blog for all the info and to see all the gorgeous creations from the sweetest of teams.
I've altered a giftbox which contained three cute tins, they're on display in my kitchen reminding of holiday fun. The box itself will be perfect for two tealight holders for a friend. Sssh, don't tell her!

I also made a card to go with the box; I was in the blue after a silly cold and wasn't really into crafting, but it became something quite nice after all!
I'm entering:
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Birthday inspired
Fashionable Stamping Challenges: Ribbon and Lace

I used:
Tim Holtz fabulous scroll stamp
Tim Holtz script
Penny Black butterfly and text from the Illuminations set
Penny Black music notes from the Clearly In Love set
Paper from Riddersholm
Cuttlebug corner and tag dies
TH flower die
Distress Ink
Liquid Pearls Gold
Perfect Pearls Rust
Recycled bits and pieces

Enjoy your week!
