using 3 carts, ANCESTRY, ELEGANT EDGES and GEORGE.  the papers chosen are from CTMH - FLORENTINE. flower is punched with PAPER SHAPERS 6 petal flower, and MCGILL giant sun punch. bling is ZVA-CREATIVE. inking with RANGER distressed inks-WEATHERED WOOD. adhesives, SCOTCH QUIK-DRY, and SCOTCH ATG.

the frames were from  elegant edges, then i brought over an oval from george and centered it within the the frame so you could slide your photo in behind.  it looks like i could have centered the one on the left a little better...but, i guess, it is what it is now!  i also cut the border 3 times at 9'' in lenth, which is the length of the mat behind the silouettes.  there are two behind there, back to back, and it just so happened the 3 silouettes matched up perfectly in the largest part of the when accidents like this happen!  then of course i place the 3rd border on the bottom, laced it with some lace ribbon i had, and made the flower by punching two flowers, glueing, then punched the sunflower, glued to the center, then added matching bling for the center of the flower.  the same bling i used for the picture frames.  ancestry is cut twice, and offset to give it a shadow effect, as heritage doesn't give you a shadow for this cut.  

i hope you like.  thanks for stopping by.
