Project Parade - Day 11

I don't even drink coffee and this challenge has been making me drool for over a week now! If you can pull yourself away from your coffee long enough to stamp something, we'd love to have you play along with this pink and brown inspiration challenge. Get all the deets, learn how you can win $15 in Verve Bucks, and link your creation HERE!

I thought these colors would work perfectly with the new Fairy Tales stamp set. The frame in that set has been calling me to add a picture ever since I first saw it. I stamped the frame in Jumbo Java VersaMagic, and embossed with clear embossing powder on kraft card stock. A 1-3/8 inch circle punch is a great fit for this frame. So I easily punched out the center. I embossed the sentiment in the same way on the circle I had just punched out and added a glazed brad. After layering everything together I stitched double lines around the bottom half with brown thread. Another decorative brad, some flowers with Stickles, and a few ribbon scraps finished it off. It's a little more shabby chic than my usual style, but I think it turned out so cute.
