Altered Frame :0)

This is my very 1st altered frame so don't be too harsh :0) I purchased the frame at my local Dollar Tree. It is only a 3 1/2 x 5. I wanted to start small to get the feel of it. I first painted the entire frame with some acrylic paint in a cream color. The paper line used is DCWV Linen Closet from the mat stack. The pearl swirls are by recollections and the flowers I made. I put brads in the centers of the crochet flowers that match the paper and I stamped the sentiment using a Heidi Grace clear stamp and I cut the shape out with my Cricut but I can't remember which cartridge I used. I think it turned out good and I am very pleased with it. I know what things I would do differently next time too :0)

This is what it started out like...
