Embellished Frame Gift

Hello everyone!  I made a gift for a friend this Christmas and I thought I would show it to you.  I got the idea from Tab's blog.  She made one several months ago.

The frame was covered in Picket Fence Crackled paint then I added the Hanglar girl colored in copics, but the real fun came when I started picking out which gorgeous flowers to add!!! So here you go, this is the list:

35mm Pale Peach Trellis Rose, 30 mm Coral Large Wild RosesWhite Cherry Blossoms, White Sweetheart Blossoms, 10mm Pale Peach Open Rose, Gypsophilia, and Large Metal Corners  all of these flowers are found at Wild Orchid Crafts!

Christmas is around the corner, I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!  You meet the best friends with blogging and I am especially happy to have some of the most wonderful, caring, generous, and talented friends ever! You guys make this sooooo worth doing!!  I love you all!

Thanks for looking!

Happy Crafting, Dena
