Santa Portrait


Time for another Lessology challenge:


(Decorate an old frame or fashion one out of cardboard...we want to see your frames!)
Hello everyone! Here are the sponsor details for our upcoming challenge.

Sponsor - Really Reasonable Ribbon

Shop - http://www.reasonableribbon.com/

Blog - http://reasonableribbon.blogspot.com/

Prize - A Prize Pack of Beautiful Ribbon and Baker's Twine (valued at $15) 








For my project I altered a garage sale frame.  I picked it up for 10 cents!  There was no backing or glass with it but that was ok.  It was perfect for what I wanted to do with it.  I spray painted it black, then I used some Teresa Collins Christmas Home papers and a Vintage Flashcard from Pretty Little Studio for a quick and easy Home Decor piece. The ribbon is some Red Metallic String from May Arts, available at Ribbon Carousel.
