Trimcraft Sweet Paris Altered Frame - Crafting By Designs

Good morning. Well, I know I've not been around much, but I do have some fabulous news to share!
I was a winner over on the Trimcraft website and won the most fabulous First Edition Flower die set. However, I am also now excited to announce that I am a Demonstrator for Trimcraft! I had my first demo day at The Range in Perth (Scotland) on the 24th of January and I will be back there this Sunday the 7th of February for another day.
So here is a frame that I have altered and posted today on the brand new Anything Goes challenge at Crafting by Designs. I have used the Sweet Paris 12x12 paper pad and covered the frame with a sheet of the damask paper.
I painted the edges of the frame with Ranger Copper Distress Paint and then spent some time die cutting using the First Edition flower dies. I have layered up flowers and embellished with Sweet Paris sticky pearls, Dovecraft clear glitter glue and Dovecraft 3D Pearl around the edges of the frame.
The swirly die is from Die-namics and I've set a section of a 12x12 paper inside the frame till I find a photo... or perhaps I will just keep it there!

Thanks for looking!
