A Vintage Journey - May Challenge - Use a Quote

Hello everyone!  I'm here today with my project for the May - A Vintage Journey Challenge.  
Jenny is our hostess this week and her challenge is:  Use a Quote.
Here's Jenny's description of her challenge:  "Take a quote! Any quote! Whether it be on a stamp, a sticker, handwritten or sourced from the internet and make it the focal point of your vintage; shabby; mixed media; art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk project."

Our Sponsor this month is That's Crafty and they will provide a £20 Voucher for one lucky randomly chosen winner!
All of the Creative Guides were able to choose one item from That's Crafty to use on this month's project and I chose this sweet Matchbox Art Shrine - Scallop Top  
(overall size with scallop front is 2 3/4" x 4")
I made my scene using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Snow Globe Thinlits that I bought after Christmas last year on sale - but have never used - so out they came for today's project!  I used one of the houses, one of the mountain peaks and two of the pine trees for my 'Adventure' scene cutting them out of Coredinations Kraft Core papers. I sanded them a little bit to reveal some of the kraft core.
I glued the pieces of the matchbox part of the Shrine together and cut pieces of paper from Paper Stash Correspondence to fit the back of the box and to cover the scallop top frame.  I sponged the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  I also sponged the edges of a Quote Chip.
Then I put my scene together inside the matchbox, layering the pieces onto the background using foam dots.  I used layers of thick foam to have the house brought forward to the front.  For the little pine tree, I simple put some glue on it's bottom edge and stood it on the base.  I also die cut stars (from the Snow Globe set) 3 out of blue Kraft Core Cordinations that I layered onto the frame and 3 from Kraft Stock Metallic Gold adhered inside on the scene.
I also adhered the star paper to the sides and top of the Shrine.

View from the back.
So I ended up using two quotes -  the Quote Chip - Adventure Awaits - and a Clippings Sticker  "Challenge the World".
So please join us in the May A Vintage Journey challenge "Use a Quote"!  I can't wait to see what you create.  
You'll find lots of inspiration from the other Creative Guides as well as the challenge 'rules' here at AVJ.
