Happy Wendesday everyone .
Come with me & join in the fun thats happening over at What's On Your Workdesk Wendesday  at Julia's place.
I've nothing of intrested on my desk today because everything has been put away after a good tidy up.
However i can show you what was  hanging  over my desk yesterday before it went in the mail.
As some will know i've been making a matchbox shrine for a swap i've been in over on uk scrappers.
I have finished it now so i thought you might want to see the finished result.
The hanging frame for the matchbox was cut using an on the edge die .
You would not believe how many times i had stamped the image of the bee on the bottle with black stazon but i got there in the end . I had to use a cotton bud to add the yellow on the bee. I half filled the bottle with some tiny beads i had. In the large bottle cap i put some matching paper which i had used to cover the front of the box, stamped the bee on some ascetate, & placed it on top of the paper.
The butterfly tag is a Graphic 45 one.

 Here is a side view of the shrine.
