Shabby Chic Altered Heart Plaque

Good morning crafters - Tammy here this morning with an altered project.
Who loves a charity shop find? I just love trekking around the shops for a bargain. 
I found a heart plaque which had a sentiment on the front.
I took that off and gave a good sanding, in-between some white acrylic paint.
I then added the lovely Mintay papers - Dear Diary. 
I adore the rose backing papers in this pad. So shabby chic.  

Paper has been torn and a little water added to curl the edges. Once dried, it gives a great finish. I only used PVA glue to attach to the wood, then coated in Gessa.

Flowers made using Lady E dies. A little glitter added for some sparkle.
 Fantasy Chipboard - Rose boarder. 
Organza butterfly added, these are gorgeous - photo doesn't really give them justice. 
You will see some wooden pink flowers added in between the foamiran roses, these are out of a pot pourri - don't they look great and match the paper just perfectly.

Acrylic paint as been added around the edges to give a shabby chic feel. 
I have to say I love how its turned out. 
Don't forget you have a few days left to enter this months challenge.

Here is my product list. Happy Crafting.
