Anything But A Card Blogaversary Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and the Anything But A Card Blogaversary Blog Hop! Hosted by Ashley. I'm so glad that you are here!!!

There are some amazing ladies on this hop so please make sure you visit all the stops. You won't want to miss a thing. If you are coming from Ellen at Card Monkey buisness, you are right on track. If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Ashley at The Glamourous Side of Scrapping as she's our awesome hostess. Please don't forget to congratulate Ashley on her one year anniversary of blogging

So here is my Anything but a Card project!!!

Here are some pics of my "Winter Wishes" Frame...

I created this frame using a one dollar Michaels wood frame. I started with a mixture of pale blue and suede acrylic paint to paint the entire frame. I distressed the edges of the frame with frayed burlap distress ink. I then embossed the frame using a snowflake stamp with a la mode sparkle embossing powder, then i used the "Holly Flourish Border stamp by Hero Arts with a la mode white embossing powder. I used some tear drop pearl trim on the top part of the frame opening; that will me coming to my shop (MB's Treasurista) soon. I framed the inside of the frame with pearl trim from my stash. In the bottom left corner i used iamroses flowers, recollection leaves and a snowflake button. I also added acrylic wheat leaves and a blue acrylic flower that i have available in my shop. I finished the frame off with a cute "Winter Wishes" sentiment that i typed and printed on card stock from word, then i added a glittered snowflake and glittered tree. Oh, and for the picture i just used dcwv design paper from the luxury mat stack, until i find a picture. Hope you enjoy it!!!:)
