Inspiration Emporium Autumn

Hi friends!
Today I'm showing you the new Inspiration Emporium monthly challenge. It's fall place settings.
I eat winter green Altoids like candy, LOVE them. I was really having a hard time with this challenge, couldn't think of a thing to do, then I spotted the Altoids tin box, aha! What would be better than a box of mints at each persons place setting?
I used a piece of core-dinations cardstock and stamped the words stamp on it from Tim Holtz's Apothecary set with Ranger Distress Black Soot ink.Then I ran it through my Big Shot between the wood grain texture fade.I sanded it a little with my sanding grip to give it some wear.
I cut a piece of lace with my Alterations vintage lace die and put it around the bottom edge of the tin.
The lid edge is a blue color, that wouldn't match at all so, I used my silver acrylic paint dabber. I took the top off and painted it with a paint brush.
I cut my pine cones and leaves with my Alterations Tattered Pine Cone die.
I added some sparkle with diamond dust glitter, this is real glass shardes, talk about sparkly, it's beautiful. I got mine off eBay.
The little tag is stamped with SU! Rough Edges Alpha stamps.
I added 2 little Kaiser pearls.

 I was SOOO excited to get my clutch in my box of goodies, I've been waiting awhile for this! It's my new make-up bag for my purse.
 I had to glam up the zipper pull with some ideaology baubles and bead chain. Gorgeous!
