French Country Frame

Hi Everyone :)  thought I'd share the finished frame I was working on. Done in French Country paper by Graphic 45.  Love, love, love this paper and really pleased with how it turned out.

All my edges are done with Pumice Stone Distress ink.  Lots of fussy cutting, I really wanted to put the big rooster on the bottom right, but then it didn't quite look right. If a person wanted to, they could add their own photos to the inside of the frame, I chose to use the paper from the paper pad.

I was going to put hangers on the back, but sometimes in the hanging of frames, you don't get it all even--or maybe it's just me :)  Anyway, I opted with ribbon wrapped (and well taped) around the frame and a bow tied at the top as you can see---and it's a tight double knot so as not to come undone!        



Thanks for coming to look  :)  Hope you're all having a wonderful day.
