Week 54 Sugar Creek Hollow Altered State

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
It is week 54 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and our theme this week is an "Altered State." We would like to see you alter something in a Vintage or Shabby Chic style!
I decided to alter a couple CD's that were scratched.
Pin It!
I started out with a few pieces of  Core'dinations colorcore cardstock in pink, bluegreen,  greenblue and light pink and green.

  I used Ranger's Vintage Photo distress ink on all my edges, and pop dots to elevate my layers.  The Rose on the front is one that I painted a while back in GIMP.  I created it into a die cut.  I used some of my favorite Moss green leaves, white crochet lace, pink swirls ribbon and cotton candy & teal baker's twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used a couple Spellbinders dies, and a couple cuttlebug and sizzix embossing folders.  The stamping was done with the stamps that I made myself.
I used my crop o dile to punch holes in the sides and tied this little treasure together with some light aqua seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
We have a Guest Designer this week at Sugar Creek Hollow!
She has the most adorable altered piece!!
Please give her a visit and leave her some love!

I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge.

See you at 
Sugar Creek Hollow!
