Happy Altered Altoid Tin

So this was for a swap.  I have never done an altered Altoid tin, so...I had no plan when I sat down.  The theme was "Flights of Fantasy".  While the end result doesn't have a lot of 'fantasy' going on, it has 'flight' covered.  

I dumped out my embellishment jar and pulled things I liked...the butterfly, "happy" tile, and the quote on the inside. I then pulled some scrap papers.  I decided it needed an accent color so I used purple, favorite of the recipient.  I had this window tin in my stash and decided to use it instead of the used Altoid tin I had originally planned on.  I liked the idea of the window.  Then I got my glue and went to work.  I love when there is no plan...just free creating.  I am happy with the end result.  What do you think?

Happy Monday!
