Flowers and Frame

 Hello friends! I am sharing my project over The Ton Stamps today!
It's my last guest design post over there.
When you create a design, what goes through your mind?
Flower and Frames are not the kind of objects that will come to your mind, right?
I was on Pinterest looking for something, but the photo of a frame and flowers totally intrigued me! 

I took out two sets Vintage Frame and Mini Wild Florals  from The Ton Stamps and started playing. This is my result.
happy birthday
I stamped the frame first and then created a mask. With that already in place, I started stamping the mini wild flowers from the larger images to the smaller ones. As long as I kept it almost symmetrical, I think it will look fine!
In the end, I embossed the frame image in silver on vellum. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine and then clear-embossed.  I then cut it out (with a backing of white card stock) and added foam tape. For the embellishments I tied two silver bows and 3 sequins and that's it.
I hope that you find this post easy on your eyes :)

I have TWO extra projects over The Ton Stamp, please head over here and check it out.
