Ribbon,Roses,and Red

 *** I have TWO posts today-please check out my other project***

Today I want to share an altered project I did with some Really Reasonable Ribbon and lace.
While out shopping at a second hand store I found this album with page inserts.There was just a red quilted cover-much to plain for my liking.
There is one of my favorite laces Noelle White Crochet Lace and added a border to the front and the spine.
White Silk was perfect for me to add to the two covers and tie a bow-there are eyelets on each cover.
I just knotted one end and pulled through each eyelet.
Wanted to share a close up of the ribbon and grouping of flowers and leaves.
Can you see the red pieces there? Guess what those are? The brads are from Lost and Found line.
I had these vintage earrings that just seemed to work with my design.and a Prima swirl finished it off.

So the next time you are shopping don't pass up those vintage books or items-you can use so many ribbons and laces to dress any item.

I am entering the following challenges:
Divas By Design- Anything Goes
Fresh Brewed Blog- Tie it Up
PaperCraft Star- anything goes
Truly Scrumptious-Use Lace
Whimsy Stamps Challenge- Use ribbon
