"ALTERED" chipboard book cover

Yes I've "altered" a chipboard book cover - the 'altered' bit is for Julia's benefit, she'll understand ;) I bought some chipboard covers ages ago from Ideal World.  They were meant to be used just as one half of a flower but I wasn't happy using that as a shape - if I ever get round to putting some piccies in.  So have joined 2 pieces, coloured it with DI and mica powders.  For the raised bits I used 'Golden' gel medium with a stencil.  I've added Grungepaper flowers and leaves and a butterfly - just card.  I think now I should have left a longer tail of string at the top and threaded a few more beads on.  I used some lovely Anna Griffin clear flourish stamps; bought on last Craft Day :)
