Alter it - Frame

Well  I had a  lovely day at the NEC on Friday, meeting up with my dear friends from Crafters Companion, Jayne Nestorenko  and my fellow DT  members Jacqui (Cats Whiskers) and Carol. I came back with lots of lovely goodies which I haven't even had time to take out of the bag yet! I've still got the goodies I bought at Malvern  to play with if I ever get time. So much to do so little time.

This week the challenge on Try it on Tuesday is Alter it and we'd like you to alter a frame.
The challenge is sponsored this week by out very good friends at the Craft Barn so don't forget to  link them in your post to be in with a chance of winning.

Here's my frame

I found this frame in the Range, it is part of a set of three hanging from some wooden letters spelling Little Princess.  It was reduced to £2 because some of the letters are missing which doesn't  matter to me.  So I now have two more frames to use for other projects. Bargain!
For the flowers I've used that freebie stamp (Craft Stamper) again on grunge paper and embossed it with gold sparkle WOW embossing powder. I've also embossed around the edges of the frame with the same powder.  I used cosmic shimmer mica powders to colour them. The butterfly is an MS punch glittered with stickles and the ribbon and beads are from my stash. The image is from the Fairyopolis CD.
The DT, as always, have some fabulous creations to share with you on the TioT blog so do please pop over and check them out and maybe  you'll feel inspired to join us this week.
Thanks you for stopping by.
