Embellishing a Store Bought Frame

We love our preferred partners. When I saw these papers from Authentique, I was so immediately inspired to start crafting.

I started with a plastic frame from Ikea. First off, I could not believe this was plastic, it's so NICE!
I die cut several flowers using Spellbinder's Spiral Blossom.

Most of the other pieces are ready made.
The Bird on a Branch is a silhouette.
I used one of Donna Salazar's Puzzle Pack pieces and covered it with yellow patterned paper,
distressed it by sanding, and glazed it with glossy accents.

Then, it was time to drip the bling.
I took Sleek Strips and made a few cuts so I could round the corners of the inner opening.
I carefully trimmed around the butterflies from the Wonderful Wings Nestabling set, and left the clear backing intact, and just glued using a glue dot. Finally, I added some strips of Nina Brackett's gorgeous Chevron Bling Border to the tabbed card.

This project really didn't take very long, but I'm so pleased with the results.
What do you think?
