Stamping for the Weekend Challenge #9 - Alterations

Hi...another great challenge this week from one of my Fav's blogs - Stamping for the weekend..this week its 'Alterations'..they want you to Alter anything you like. Now I'm not overly into this I have to be honest...but thought I would have ago with a note book I bought a little while ago to do the very same with..I had Christmas Presents in mind!!..Anyway..the DP is Doodlebug and the white square is a frame from Craftworks and its embossed with swiss dots but you cant see that in the pic. I wanted to give a lush look so I used two velvet flowers one silk and then lots of paper roses. I added a few pearl stems I got from Hobbycraft and then glittered it a bit...Oh I also used some paper lace thingys from Doodlebug and a bit of spotted ribbon from stash. After I did all this I remembered that maybe I should have used a stamped image..umm oh well trust me!! lol I'm going to enter it anyway as I made the effort!!! lol
Do go and check out the DT inspirationshere and see how it should be done!!!!
Happy Crafting!!
