The challenge was ALTER A FOUND OBJECT.
No cards or scrapbook pages allowed, the item must be 3-D and must have started out as something you found at a thrift store, on the side of the road, in the back of your closet, etc.

I then found a skull, drawn by my Teamie at LOC, the lovely Lisa Tyrell
which I printed three times in different colours so I could paper-piece the rose together.
