Altered matchbook

I came across a new challenge blog http://alteritmonthly.blogspot.com/ Every month they will have a new alter it challenge this month it was to alter a matchbox I love the site and the matchboxes altered on it are fab. So I decided to give it a go.
Thanks for setting the challenge Carol, Gillian & Zuzu.
 I also altered the other Jigsaw piece Kindly sent to me by Gina I aimed for  a vintage sewing theme on this one, so lots of lace, buttons,&  alter long sewing pin

Hi Alma, thanks for joining in on this month's theme, your altered matchbox is devine, love the depth of that green, really striking, and the way you have made the butterfly "fly" fantastic work and hope to see you again.

ooh this is so pretty, it puts me in mind of the sorts of thing 1920s flapper divas would wear in their hair. Not sure why, I think the feather is speaking to me!
