Green altered clothes pin

Challenges:
The Cutie Pie Challenge-cute with pearls and swirls, my cutie is in the picture
Delightful Challenges-color crazy (color normally dont work with, green, not a huge fan but went crazy)
Red Carpet Studio-The Lucky One, what says lucky more than green
Bunny Zoe-monochrome (yep think I accomplished that)
Crafty Sentiments-lots of green (yep got that one too)
Catch the Bug-feeling lucky (luck makes me think of St Pattys, St Pattys makes me think of, you guessed it GREEN)
Papertake Weekly-BINGO (flowers, free, buttons)



Well this is my second altered clothes pin, this one is smaller, only about six inches I reckon. I added a wooden frame to this one. I painted it green, then used my distress paint dabber to put polka dots on it, I used a small dowel to put the dots on the frame. I put swirls on with liquid pearls. I pleated ribbon, then added some lace. Kinda hard to see that anymore though lol. I added flowers and buttons, pearl trim and these words that say special memories. The photo is my niece and her baba (grandpa), she was only 9 months old in this picture, shes nine years old now. This is a gift for her grammy.
