Three Muses "Rust" & Theme Thursday Animals

I made this little trinket box the other week. and the hand made paper flowers and other pieces of book pages had been rusted using the old tin tray and vinegar method. I love rusting lace and paper and this is such an easy (but a little smelly) way to do it. So as the paper was all rusted with real rust I am entering it for the three muses Challenge. Rust is one of my all time favourite themes. And Theme Thursday is animals and I think of all animal life and nature when i hear the expression the birds and the bees (thats the polite version )

Edited to add: The stamps are from Tim Holtz's "artful flight" Set.
