inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tale
I got the idea when I had to decorate a 250 ct matchbox for a swap on swapbot. The theme was sender's choice - and it had to be filled with embellishments. Ive considered the receiver's taste - and my want to send variety - hence the somewhat ecclectic look;).
