DCBD 122 ~ Use the big shot!

Well I had some fun altering this old frame. I have a few frames hanging out on my back porch. it seems to me that wallet sized photos tend to get tossed aside. I know i've used this image quite a bit, but this frame is for Brian (dad's) office. I made a simple scrapbook page, but the use of a frame is fun for doing layers.

I started with a plain blue piece of paper and some so saffron ribbon. Then I added the photo with a rose red matte.

I added the word "love" from SU's decor elements line of vinal.

Next I cut the large daisy out of shimmer white cardstock and layered two of the pieces together. I slipped the ribbon through the hole and tied a knot. I pulled the two ends (on the back side) to make the knot tight, and added the whole piece using stampin dimensionals to adhere it to the glass on the frame. The whole project probably took 10 minutes, but I think Dad is going to love it, dont you? :)

Neat! I like your take on the challenge. It is nice to see something different than a card all of the time. It turned out very nice.
