altered tray and card

so with Christmas around the corner. I've got most of my shopping done and intended to make some cards but haven't got any done yet. So i shall be busy this week getting things done. But i did have a chance to do the bramford challenge
Di was giving away some wooden embellishment trays, so Tracey grabbed them for us all to alter. Firstly i cut with a craft knife some of the wooden dividers so i could have a large square, one rectangle and 3 little squares. Painted my tray with fresco paint. Paper used is the pickled pear collection by Kaisercraft
 the resin frame i made from a mould and clay, wooden watch is by prima, watch hand, punched butterflies, a paper flower and die cut leaves. The cameo was originally orange so i painted the orange surround in black and glued to a jewellery finding. The bottle was stuffed with florist moss and the butterfly was from the stickers from the same paper collection.

the labels and LOVE are again cut from the paper collection and finally a decorative metal corner added to the piece.
Lastly a card, yes i do occasionally make them This uses prima papers, glimmer mist, tissue tape, die cut flowers and leaves, chipboard butterfly, metal findings from my treasure box and the sentiment is from a wendy vecchi stamp
