Wedding Bookatrix in a Frame

After seeing quite a few of my 'Bookatrix' cards my nan asked if I could make her one for my cousins wedding in August, and could I also put it in a frame. I've been working on this on and off through the week and today I was determined to get it finished and woo-hoo it's now finished!!

Please excuse the quality of the photo, but because of the glass in the frame I had to take the picture in the hallway, which is darker, to try and reduce any reflection. I've not over decorated the bookatrix card itself as I felt with a decorated frame it would be a bit much. The frame is from The Range and is a deep box frame which is usually ideal for an emebellished scrap page. I've painted the frame using H2O's in Burnt Umber, which gave it a slight gold shimmer colour. Used maroon and cream cord around the frame and all flowers are from a local haberdashery store. I'm really not happy with the picture, it doesn't show it's true colours at all, but at least you have the idea. The colour theme was to be maroon and cream to match their tudor themed wedding. Hope my nan likes it, as well as my cousin and his new bride.

Been a pretty good day here today, warm and sunny with a bit of fair weather cloud, not that I've been out in it really to appreciate it. Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend.
