To embellish my frame I used the following images from eCraftcentral – Leaf 1, Leaf 2, Leaf 3, cut from Cocoa, Olive and Mustard card stocks using the eCraft, then embossed and highlighted them with ink to add texture. The Flowers, Swirls and Butterflies are images from the eCraft SD cards, to add interest to the flowers, I stamped the Honeycomb Background from Stampotique, then curled the petals stacked them to resemble a mum. All pieces are glued in place with a hot glue gun, I added Distress Stickles to all pieces. For added embellishments, I used dyed Seam Binding and Trinket Pins.
Having a house full of men, I couldn't stick them in a flower filled frame, so I added my Wedding photo.
My other thought was to cover the chipboard with adhesive backed cork, add Chicken Wire and use it as a Rustic Memo Board, but DH said it was too small for a Memo Board, so I went in search of a Barn Picture, of course when you need one, you don't have it going the right direction! Anyhow, here's the frame with the wire, just envision an old Barn photo under the wire
