Creating with Vintage Patterns CD: An Altered Clock

Hi friends!  I got a chance to play in my big over-sized toy box and decided to alter a clock I had purchased at a thrift store.I printed this pattern paper from the "Creating with Vintage Patterns" CD by Crafty Secrets.  It's one of my favorites because of the little rose buds and vintage ladies.  I added some pearls and shabby hand dyed seam binding to add to the vintage feel.  Crafty Secrets has some new clear stamps in the store and you're gonna love 'em!  Here's what Sandy had to say on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog.
