Something different - A Frame

As I was telling you in the yesterday's post, I made a frame for someone to give as a gift. The only special request was to contain the poem that he wrote. I began with painting the frame in black, than I sand it a little bit at the edges and at the end I varnished it. The sanding gives it a little bit of a vintage look. For the background I chose a piece of paper from The Stack 6 by DCWV. I love the little bird on this paper!
On the left bottom corner of the frame I made a branch from wire and I dressed it in  satin ribbon.
Besides the flowers, I also attached a little tag wrote by hand.
On the tracing paper I printed out the poem, but I promised I won't publish it so I had to erase the words from the picture.
Curious of how the complete frame looks like? Well here it is:
 I like very much how it turned out.

Yesterday, as I was surfing on the internet I found out that the challenge hosted by Scrapper in Romania this month has the theme "White-Black and a little bit of turquoise". I don't have so much white in my project but I have a lot of turquoise ... so I am guessing it's ok to take part at the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
