Anything but a card!

Hi guys,
Back again as GDT for

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

 Simon Says Stamp our challenge this time is Anything but a card,
the girls are showcasing 7Gypsies/Maya Road products this week, 
as usual if you have any you can use them or if like me you haven't you can still join in,
I've altered a brown paper bag using Magnolia papers, cheesecloth, dies and flowers,

Tilda is coloured with my distress re-inkers and is layered onto a spellbinders die which I've edged with Platinum Stickles,
again I've used another of the beautiful white  Prima flowers at the bottom,

I've used a Tim Holtz alterations butterflight border die which I've coloured with distress inks to match the colours,
Closer look of the gorgeous Prima flower,
