Ladybug Frame



My friend asked me to make a picture frame for her to give as a gift and wanted me to include ladybugs. This is what I came up with.



I first traced the frame onto the back of the paper so I knew where to cut, and I trimmed off a bit more on each outside edge. I painted the front and back of the frame a charcoal gray to match the Cosmo Cricket paper. Once it dried, I adhered the paper with Scor-Tape and stamped and colored the ladybugs. I added some diamond stickles to each one and adhered with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
Melissa
