This is the first of many name frames I'm working on in the next month. Please give me feedback, I could use it!! I am making these as wedding gifts for everyone in my wedding and for those helping. These take so long!! I'm tuckered out!

I think this looks good... I've been wanting to make something like this too! Definately hard work indeed, I'll bet your tuckered out!
Could you try tearing the edge of the green to coordinate with the tan on the other side?
Good luck! ~Kendra
I love it! Colors are gorgeous. Only suggestion might be to keep embellishments in the subtle colors (ribbon looks like bright red/blue...but that might just be in the photo too). Wonderful job (and I might have to steal your idea for my son's wedding party!)

If you are making a large number of these, do it assembly-line-style! I made 17 of the 8 1/2 x 11 frames at Christmas time for my Sunday school class, and did it in only a weekend. It helps to use similar colors, etc. (I used the designer papers from the Holiday catalog--what a life-saver!) and then only personalize them a little (like the names, for example). I started by choosing the base colors, and had them all out on the table, and then just built up from there.
Good luck, I'm sure the recipients will LOVE them!

Great idea! They will love them. How about staggering the placement of the letters up and down and tilted them a bit.
I agree about tearing the edge of the paper on the left and that the red and blue ribbon looks too strong for your color scheme.
