Heartfelt Wings - Altered Tin

Happy Sunday Bloggers. Well here is my contribution to the new challenge blog 'Just for fun' - Heartfelt Wings and also inspired by Creative Card Crew - Pink and Purple.


I have altered a tin and used metal to make my heart and wings for the lid. The tin, previously one of those sweet tins that you might put in the car for travelling, has been covered both in and out with different papers, lace added to the outside rim of the lid and the top and sides embellished with hearts, sentiments, flowers and a key charm.








Enjoy.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
