Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge with an altered frame featuring "Thank You"

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday challenge!  I hope everyone is having a great week so far!  It's feeling like Summer already and I can't wait to start hitting the beach these coming weekends! So excited!!

I'd like to introduce our Fabulous sponsor for the week and that is Saturated Canary!!!

The theme this week is actually something different....It is "Anything But a Card".

So here's my project....

I was really excited about this challenge!  I just love making cards but as many of you know, I also love altering items so I thought this would be the perfect time to make another altered project!  I decided to alter a picture frame which I plan to give to my niece.  This is one of those $1 plain wood frames which I picked up at Michaels.  I covered it using a Glitz paper collection called "Laces with Grace" which is a super pretty collection.  This background paper with the butterflies is my favorite design of this collection.  I used some Ranger Glue and Seal to glue it down to the frame. I then sanded it down and used my Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone.  The sweet image is called "Thank You" by Saturated Canary.  Isn't she so adorable?!!! I stamped my image using Memento ink in Black Tuxedo and then colored up this cute girl with my copic sketch markers.  I added some teal ribbon in my stash and also layered a strand of some small cream pearls on top of that.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections. I added some small pearl centers to the small flowers. I also added some butterflies cut out using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and then a Tim Holtz ticket which says "Dream".  

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my project.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.  I'd love to see your creative projects! :)

Hope you all like my project for the week!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)
