Baby Picture Frame

Hi Everyone!
It's time again for another challenge at the Creative Belli Challenge.  Today starts Challenge #146 which is Anything but a Card.   I had so much fun doing this one - hardest part was making up my mind.  I finally settled on a picture frame that I bought on clearance at Michaels last year.  I always pick up sale items, with the best of intentions - sometimes I actually use them :) 

I mixed several acrylic paints to get the colour I needed to cover the base of the frame and match the Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection DP.   I used a large MS punch-around-the-page punch to do the lacey mat.  The flower I made using SB blossom dies and coloured the petals with Shimmerz (Opal).  The leaves are from SB Foliage Die and Baby is a Marianne Designs.   I die cut the baby's name using QuicKutz Studio Classic.   The chipboard was from my stash and I coloured it with the acrylic mix I made up.

Frame is 8x8 inches

Here's a picture of the wooden frame I used:

I will be entering this into the Crafty Mess Challenge #111,   Use Paint

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #70  - No cards, tags or ATC
Make It Monday Challenge #94 - Always Anything Goes

This is my first time doing a frame - I think I could do with a little more practice but am pleased with how this turned out. Thanks for stopping by and we'd love it if could play along on this fun challenge.

Hugs, Pat K.
