Sweet Memories Frame

I made this for the August Online Crop at Scrappy Gifts. The challenge was to alter an item and use ribbon in your design. I took a one dollar unfinished wood frame, then painted and covered in patterned paper.
I layered several embellishments like fabric and paper flowers with brad centers. There's a cute charm that says "Growing Up" attached so it looks like it's hanging from the bow. Plus an epoxy button and chipboard heart all in this corner. Chipboard letters spell out "Sweet".
The second half of the title was stamped in green and then embossed so it has a raised and shiny finish. Put together the frame's title is "Sweet Memories".
In the opposite corner I added two more chipboard accents, a bottle cap, and more ribbon.
I left the corner of the pink heart blank so that a monogram or year can be added to personalize it more. Thanks for stopping by and looking! I hope you enjoyed seeing my latest creation!
