This week I decided to frame a favorite picture from last year of my youngest grandchild, Dariaís, first Christmas. I used an unfinished frame from Michaelís and painted it with 2 coats of satin cream acrylic paint, then made a small mat of gold to surround the picture. I stamped a large ornament from ODBDís Ornaments 2 (2011) in versamark, then embossed it in gold and cut it out with the SB 2011 Heirloom Ornaments nesties. Next stamped the verse from ODBDís Christmas Door on cream, gold embossed that and made a red and gold layer to make it stand out. My Momís stash is still getting use, as I bought out the red/gold ribbon, and made a border around the frame, put my Scripture in one corner and my ornament on the opposite corner up on dimensionals, and made some little gold holly leaves out of the gold paper with some red berries, and a layered oval with the year for the other two corners.

What a great keepsake. This is so precious and so sweet! I haven't seen you venture to much into the anything but a card category - but you should more often because this is really good. I want everything you used on this creation so you did a great job on it. This has love written all over it Greenie. Hugz and LYMI!
