Cute As A Button July Inspiration

Hello!
Today I am sharing a little inspiration on the

I created an inspirational decor piece using


I started by gathering some materials:
the printed image
an inexpensive MDF frame from Michaels
some coordinating papers from DCWV's the Music Stack



I colored the image to match the papers and fussy cut.
I painted the backside of the frame and the edges of the front
with an acrylic paint. Next, I used the frame as a template
for cutting the DP I wanted to use on the front of the frame.
Then I cut out a section of the coordinating paper and printed
a verse I found that suited the image directly on the paper.


The piece of Dp cut for the front of the frame was decoupaged.
Next I embellished the frame with a doily and 
some layered floral stickers and a bow and popped the image with foam tape 
on the right side of the frame.
I placed the piece of DP with the verse where a photo
would normally go. And the piece is finished!



I hope you'll check out this stamps along with
 the others available at
