Altered Eclectics Latest Challenge!

Hi there, I'm very late with this post!

The new challenge has started at Altered Eclectics and there are some wonderful projects to inspire you!
My project has a little story - I forgot my daughter in laws Mum's birthday, she was 75. I have never missed her birthday and she has always looked forward to receiving my card so when I found out I was mortified and decided it was a bit of a poor do to just send her a card! She likes pretty things and appreciates anything delicate so I set about making her a photo frame - this is what I made:

 I used a basic frame from Tesco as my base and covered it with some embossed white gaffer tape which I then painted with some mother of pearl paint. I die cut the corners, flowers and butterflies and then covered them with glue and glitter. The tiny flowers and butterflies were punched out then given the same treatment.
I continued the tiny flowers and butterflies down the sides to give it a pretty finish. When I use glitter like that I always give it a good dose of clear glaze to set it. I finished off the flowers and butterflies with pearls in various colours and added some pretty paper inside, hey voila all done!
Now I did send her a card as well and shee loved them both but I believe the frame now has a nice picture of her little dog in - and she has hinted that she could do with another!
I hope you like my frame and I'd love to see you over at Altered Eclectics for the latest challenge - so what are you waiting for!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
