Peachy Keen "You've Been Framed"



Hello everyone! Peachy Keen's challenge this week is "You've Been Framed". I just got into the monthly stamp club and received my stamps. These are THE CUTEST stamps EVER! So I just had to use them on my project for this challenge!
I made my own frame by cutting a solid 7X9 piece for the back and another 7X9 piece for the front. The front piece I cut a 5X7 square into the center and mounted it to the solid piece using pop dots. The inside mat I created by stamping the clouds and grass onto pattern paper. I paper pieced the turtle and colored him with Copic markers. I added crinkle ribbon for the hanger and some bows to the front.
BTW, the picture is of my son when he was 3. We just had his graduation party on Saturday and this picture was on one of the boards I put together. When I saw these stamps I knew I had to use this picture with that adorable turtle! LOL!
SUPPLIES:
My Craft Spot- Spring Moss Crinkle Ribbon
Peachy Keen Stamps- Cloud Background, June SOTM

Thanks for looking and have a great night!
