Altered Coaster

This is my first attempt at altering a coaster. At first I had no idea what to do but then I thought even though it is altered it would be great if it could still be functional. So while going through my papers to decide on a colour. I came across cold lamininated papers left over from a journal making day. So I started with Kaiser Craft - Rough and Tough - Dirty added a flourish from SU Priceless set, punched one large and two medium Retro flowers. I added fluff to the centre of each of these flowers. Fluff (my name for it) is something I acquired from Mum. It is like the shavings from felt and originally was from either Trichem or Hobbytex many many years ago. To finish off I used KaiserCraft Basics rubons, then inked the edges with Timber Brown Stazon ink.
The reason for the coaster? It is for our monthly craft swap over at Craftmad. These swaps are fun and I hope that my partner doesn't spy this before she receives it. Most months we swap two handmade cards made to a nominated theme. We have also swapped a matchbox crammed full of embellishments, ATC, Fat Quarters and sewn projects. Happy Sunday everyone.
