Vader Was Framed

Knowing my love for everything Basic Grey Urban Prairie, I wanted to do a project with it that I could see out and about in the house. So I covered an old frame and made it new again. Here's what I started with:

It's a 4x6 wooden frame I've had for who knows how long. Funny how things pile up in your house for years on end, eh? And here's what I ended up with:

I covered it in some BG patterned paper and used some BG chipboard as accents. (I covered the backs of them with cardstock and glued them to the frame.)

I distressed the edges of the frame and used Stickles on random parts of the bird and background paper.

Add a picture and viola!

P.S.-Toot is 5 months old today! She's growing up so fast...Noooooooooo!
