a pretty frame

hi all
 I am back from my jolly hols and i am well rested and rearing to craft....once the mountain of washing has been sorted !!!!
I made this pretty frame for trimcraft before i went on hols so here it is
I used a blank chipboard frame from here at

.I have painted the entire frame  front and back with a TH paint dauber in shell pink and left it to dry,
I then covered the frame with  trimcraft first edition spring drop papers using pva glue and left it to dry
,I made some flowers using the spring drop papers and a TH tattered floral die and card candy
  I added them with some swirls and leaves to the left corner of the frame
,I added  two embossed marianne d  corners,some butterflies and a gorgeous ribbon from meiflower crafts
 The pic in the centre is  from the fizzy moon decoupage  hearts and flower pad.cute for valentines day i thought.
