I've been Framed!

I wish I could say that I had a horribly busy and productive week, and that it why I haven't posted. The reality is neither, but I did manage to make something. This weekend is my Mom's birthday, and I wanted to have something to give her as my main gift won't be till later. I bought this frame a while ago, with the intent to embellish it. With my time running out to have something done for the weekend, I called around and finally found Cricut's Flower Shoppe cartridge. I can't tell you how long I have been trying to get this cartridge. A few calls, a bit of a drive and some practice and I ended up with this. Excuse the photo quality.

I entered this in the following challenges:
