Nothing Worth Having is Easy to Get

Here's a cute little project today for Retro Cafe Art... a collage matchbook. It's a silly little piece only 1 1/2", but I can carry it around wherever I go. I particularly like the sentiment...."Nothing worth having is easy to get.", sometimes I have to remind myself of that.

I used a match book and painted it black and silver. To the front I added black German Dresden Scrap and a heart that I covered with patterned red glitter. Inside is a Retro Cafe Art image from the Screen Sirens collage sheet wearing a sweet little crown. The crown is painted silver and then silver Stickles were added. She has red Stickled  lips  and some glitter in her hair. Another piece of the German Dresden scrap  accents the bottom. The hand cut sentiment reads "Nothing worth having is easy to get."

Hope you get all you want and need this week.
artfully yours, gerri
