Love grows - altered cross stitched frame

I decided to do some non 12*12 lo- really a try, as I always scrap 12*12.
So this plastic circle frame for doing cross stitch was in my stash (me- cross stitch? 20 years ago maybe...) and this old curtain leftovers(yards and yards of it ) were perfect for this one- you can call anything but paper craft- also I used a bit of paper and acetate on it too.
You can see the backside picture of this one too to understand it better and it is for wall hanging, not for the album item.I also left the lace " as is"- I think it is more interesting this way, also it can be cut in a second around the frame
I did it for Artastic march challenge prompt and for some other web challenges
Something old- new again- all my recycling - for Little paper shop
New- technique on a frame- flowers- tassel- for Fab n' funky--
Flowers for Creative cottage
Buttons ans bows for Studio 101--
