ALTERED FRAME. CUTTLEBUGSPOT


Good evening
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to alter a picture frame. I wanted my frame to look a little vintage to compliment the photo of my lovely nana who I still miss so much even after 30 years. This photo was taken of her in the 1920's I love this photo!
I used cream pearlescent card which is embossed with one of the 5x7" CB folders from the Oh My Crafts Christmas bundle although this folder can be used any time of year don't you think?! The flowers in the corner were from some little candle holders which cost next to nothing and I only bought them for the pretty glittered flowers and leaves and the butterfly is a feather butterfly from Hobbycraft. I finished off with some QK flourishes and I was done! Such a quick and easy way to decorate a plain frame!
Please pop over and see the gorgeous frames the rest of the DT created and while you're there leave a comment for a chance to win $20 to spend at Custom Crops!
Have a great week!
