 The butterfly and embroidered corners are all from little snippets and the US is painted grunge letters...
I used crackle paint on the Us....

Also...I entered the TGF fashionista challenge-I did not win but I had fun trying...
 I altered a little sweet tin for a Dress Up Miss Anya game...
 I have my 3 Miss Anyas all paper pieced and each of the heads and bodies has a magnet on the back so you can mix and match your own fashionista by sticking the pieces on the inside of the lid...
 Here are 3 versions....
