a gift for a friend

I made this lo for two of my coworkers and their daughter for christmas!

the two patterned papers are from the dcwv old world stack. I sanded all the edges with sand paper then inked them. the frame is made withstrip of paper I glued together then I painted them with tim holtz distress crackle paint and used a heat gun on it. I then inked with brown ink to give the look of aged wood. I also added some gold stickles to the frame. the two black flourishes are basic grey rubons. the journal card is from the fancy pants christmas line. I cut it in half and pushed it under the frame. the two green flourishes are grunge board that i inked green and then brown and also put some stickles on. all the flowers are prima with jewel center and stickles added. the two roses are primas also that I rolled up! the green ribbon is some gimp I got from walmart. and the words family, christmas, and 2008 I made myself by inking a piece of paper and then writing my letters down and cutting them apart!
thanks so much for looking I hope you enjoy it as much as she did! its now hung in her office for everyone to see!
