Gift for Our Daughter

Not too long ago I received the most beautiful stamp set from Innovative Stamp Creations. After participating in the Crazy4Challenges (see sidebar) I was alerted by a friend that I had won!! This set, Silhouettes 1, is one I'd seen many times in galleries and always loved it!
So I was so excited to be able to choose this set which comes with a few other lovely silhouette images and sentiment sets. Thank you Innovative Stamp Creations , I love it!
This week our youngest daughter celebrated her birthday, and I decided to make a 3 part frame using this set and the sentiment from SU in the center as her gift from me. The outside matting is rolled with a new large SU wheel from the new mini catalogue. Then the images on the card and the frame were colored in with markers before stamping. The card's border punch is EK Success and the ribbon and hardware are from SU.
Remember you can click on the photograph for a larger image to pop up...the frame is a bit hard to see...but looks really pretty in real life.
I enjoyed making a frame and hope it gives you an idea to use some of your own stamps to frame up!
Thanks for stopping by today. I so appreciate you taking the time and comments are always fun to read!!
Have a great day!
