Background gone wrong...

The day started with good intentions. I planned on making several background papers for future projects and had some very specific ideas for color schemes and design. "The best laid plans"..... I was so unhappy with the way they were turning out, I tore them up and sent them to the "circular file". At which point they suddenly transformed into something totally new and this collage was born. Oh, how I love buttons!!

I also wanted to try altering some cabinet cards (thank you Maija!!) and came across this old card that I had tucked away - actually almost threw away - as being totally uninteresting. New life for the little garcon!!
