The challenge this month was to create a fabulous frame.  I was able to get together with my BFF last weekend to scrap, so I used her beautiful DeNami stamps to create a bit of an unconventional frame.  My frame only has a top and bottom.  I just didn't think anything on the sides was necessary - the top and bottom work to pull the frame together. ;-)


I stamped on Kraft and then I colored in those goregous, dainty flowers with Prismacolor colored pencils and added some Stickles in the center for a little bit of glimmer.  I love, love, love the look of the white pencil on Kraft.  Then, I stamped some coordinating flowers in the background in VersaMark.



So, the flowers create a fun frame for the sentiment!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I'd love to hear your comments.  And don't forget to keep hopping and comment in order to win some prizes!!! Good luck!!!

Your next stop on the Hop is the upber-talented Pattie Goldman!
