Mint Chocolate Frame

Challenging myself to do 'Anything But A Card' for SSDS Week 39 Challenge and Crafts and Me Challenge 4 and following Colour Challenge 41/Photo Inspiration (mint, chocolate, cream) for Incy Wincy , I altered this photo frame using some KandCo DP, flowers cut on GS cart and embossed w/CB Textile folder.... My Mother gave this glossy pine photo frame to me as it didn't match with her 'look' I decided to change it up and gift it back to her... I'll be curious to see whether or not she realizes it's the same frame...and while it is a photo frame, I opted to put a mirror in the center instead..but when that gets old...change it out!
..I am so happy to also be entering into the following challenges:

Cupcake Craft - buttons
Die Cut Dreams - shabby chic
Tuesday Taggers - step out of comfort zone
Created by Hand - mirror mirror
Quixotic Challenge - let your garden grow
Cute Card Thursday - someone special
