Altered photo frame

Hi Everyone
I thought I would show you another photo frame I have altered. This time it is more of a shabby Chic style.

It really tells it's own story, but the thing I am most pleased with is the lovely red grungepaper flower. I used the TH tattered floral die and added some glitter to the edges and love the result.

The die cut used at the top is from the Llewelyn Bowen Renaissance collection and as you can see I have also added a pin and beads and some little hearts, one with a green heart charm hanging from it.

Of course I have added a butterfly from my downloaded collection and spread glossy accents over it.

I hope your week is going well.
Take care. Luv Brenda xxxx
