Hanging 3D project!

The current challenge at JustRite Inspirations
is to create a 3D project as a home decor piece, gift, etc. 
and
Flourishes asks that we use 3 elements beginning with the same letter!  FUN!
("B", beads, bow, butterfly, brown ribbons, border stamps...)
This was made for my mother for her boudoir...in other words, her master bath.
The photo is one I've used before.  It is her 1951 high school graduation picture!
Everything was far more formal back then.

For these sweet little framed images, I used
JustRite's, "Fleur de Lis Labels Twenty"
and "Greetings from Paris",
which I stamped on dark brown cardstock and
embossed in cream powder.


This amazing, realistic looking "Lace" below was created using the
"Lace Border" stamp,
and heat embossed onto vellum!  Love this effect!

I then glued the two sections of "lace" to a strip of ribbon to hang my photo frame and stickpins from.
These stamps show so much detail and look so sharp when embossed!




The butterfly and crown are Tim Holtz' Grungeboard that has been painted brown , crackled, painted cream and then sanded to highlight the embossing.
The tiny bling is Recollections.
The stickpins I made myself.
The DP I used to cover the wooden hanger is "Lady Couture", DCWV.
Lastly, the little epoxy frames are those I picked up at Michael's when they
had them for 80 cents each! Wish I had gotten tons more!
Thanks for reading through this entire post!
I hope my mother likes this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Jan, another incredible project! I love the idea of the frames dangling from the hanger. This is terrific. Thanks for entering it in this month's Stampendous Challenge.
