Altered Post-A-Photo Postcard

Hi everyone!

Welcome to Susie's surprise birthday blog hop! This hop is hosted by Linda AKA ScrapChica... thank you Linda for inviting me to participate!  Ok, so here is the project I worked on for Susie.... first of all she loves owls so I had to incorporate the little feathered friend into this project. Also her favorite color is purple...so you will find some purple blossoms accented around the picture frame.

I used this "Post-A-Photo" that I purchased from my local Goodwill. When I saw this, right away I thought, "I can alter this into a picture frame!" I had a light bulb moment. LOL! Anywho... below is the before picture....

So this is how it looks all decorated. =)

Isn't it adorable!?! I used the paper from DCWV "The Sweet Matstack". It was the perfect size to cover the front of the post card. I then added the embellishments (mulberry paper flowers, berry spray, leaves, feather, trim and bling). Also I could not forget to add the little owl and a feather. I just love how this turned out!!! So what do you think? I hope she likes this, although I did have a lot of fun creating this for her.

If you hopped here from Sharon aka SMScrapper then you are heading in the right direction.... if not follow the list below. Now it is time for you to head over to Tereese's AKA Friday blog at www.fridayscreations.blogspot.com and see what beautiful project she has created.
