I'm on one of my favorite tangents-tins and classical periods of art. This time it's the Renaissance and the Mona Lisa. One of my former art profs used to call her "the rose of the Renaissance"
so I have surrounded her with flowers and popped a crown on her head (because she mentioned she was sorry she missed the S.O.B. swap).

It's so good of you to take care of her like that. Smiley I love the flower layers and the ivory/black black/ivory text inside and out. Very nice!

It is an altoids tin. I got my embellishments from a die-cut company in Australia.
