Late Summer Inspiration

My husband and I have acquired lots of furniture, dishes, & knickknacks from his grandma over the past couple of years. Most recently she gave me a large box of pictures because we thought I'd be able to find someone who would be interested in the frames for projects.
This frame really struck me and I knew I had to transform it. Today's 3-D project theme over at SSInkspiration gave me the perfect reason to get creative and design with this frame. I felt nostalgic each time I saw this frame so I headed back to my childhood. One of my favorite memories of this time of year was growing sunflowers to enter in the county fair. Whether it's a field or just a row of sunflowers, they always bring a smile to my face.
So I grabbed a sheet of Summer Starfruit cardstock to cut an oval out of. I stamped the Sunflower stamp with Baked Brown Sugar. I added two pieces of 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Summer Starfruit and a piece of 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim in Baked Brown Sugar to give a little extra jazz to the frame.
I can't wait to hang this on my office wall in the morning. Be sure to check out Shellie's fabulous 3-D project as well. We would love for you to share your favorite 3-D project you've made so link up in the comments over at SSInkspiration!
Have a fabulous weekend! Stay tuned, you might find a special treat this weekend!
