Good Things Come In Small Packages (FSC#30)

Hello Everyone
It is now time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge where this fortnight my DT sister Claire has set the theme of  Good Things Come In  Small Packages.  We do ask that you include stamping on your entry and if you want to read rules and details of the prize available then just click the link above. As always, if you take a visit to FSC you will see the amazing art on display from my DT sisters. Have fun with this challenge theme.
My DT sample for FSC also doubles as DT art for Oxford Impressions, using the beautiful Season of Giving plate. Suzanne has up-dated this classic Oxford Impressions plate of stamps so well worth a look at it.
Stamps
Oxford Impressions:- Season of Giving:- boy and girl, sheet music, It’s A Wonderful Life
Oxford Impressions:- Sleigh Bells :-  Wish and snowflake

On receiving this set of stamps I was keen to make a start on my own Christmas projects and as they say, no time like the present, excuse the pun – this will actually be a present for a friend. I started by altering a matchbox, making the focal this adorable stamp and I could not but use that sentiment.
Now open up the matchbox…to reveal the gift of a Christmas ornament.
Vintage glass glitter particles are caught behind the glass to create added sparkle as is wish which is taken from Sleigh Bells plate.We look forward to seeing your entries for this challenge.
Wishes
Lynne

    Oh my Lynne your gift-card-ornament is amazing. I love the idea and the look. It’s so special. Is the ornament a glass charm or slide? I love the star on the ornament! Beautiful. Joyous Wishes, Linda

    Hi Lynne, thanks for visiting me and becoming my new follower. Popped over here and so glad I did because your work really is sensational! I don’t mean to gush but I’ve looked through many posts and I feel very inspired to create and this matchbox is no exception. It is beautifully vintage and I love the fact that the beauty continues inside too. I’ll now catch your creations via email and I look forward to the next one!
