Oh boy I am really having a hard time coming up with good post titles :)
I have used these frames once before and they were a bit hard to manage with how delicate they are, but this time I layered two die cuts and that they gave it more stability and I like how it turned out. This dark brown cardstock I use comes out looking more black but it is indeed brown :)
The flowers were cut from a large sheet I made of colorburst, shaped them and layered and top it off with a gem. I really like the layers of colors it gives to the flower. I think I need to make up more of these big sheets with different color combo's that I can just grab and use.
I stamped the sentiment on a small piece that I inlaid into the smaller frame of the set. Little shading around the edges with my ink and sponge dauber.

I will be sharing more pictures today of our trip to Kentucky, after we hiked back down the mountain, hubby found us a lovely location to have our picnic that I packed before leaving that morning, it was beside a pretty creek, surrounded by a mountain and tall trees, I am so bummed I didn't get pictures, but it was nice and relaxing after the hike, we decided after lunch to just take a drive that we saw on the map that goes through the Daniel Boone National forest and doing so we came across some more trails and pull offs, this trail was mostly flat and only 1/2 mile down so we figures we had another mile in us to walk :)
This is the view at the end of the trail, since it was mid day sun the other pictures I took were into the sun and they were washed out.
As you can see we had a bit of color along the trail and pretty blue skies, can't ask for anything more. I hope you all are not sick of the fall pictures, I just hate to see fall end.
I did manage to get my Christmas tree in the living room and the small one I have in my kitchen up, today I will be working on the rest.
Thanks ever so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know you did!!
