Art Creations Friday

Art Creations Friday is celebrating its first birthday! And when it started a year ago, it premiered with this lovely vintage female image. This image
has become one of my absolute favorites and I've used it many times. It's hard to create anything you don't like with this image.


I created two submissions for this week's challenge -- which was to use the image from the challenge site's first week. I wanted to use some packaging I had aquired from Prima and from Making Memories. This project is totally green!





I bought this frame stamp recently online. It's from Stampers Anonymous and I love it.
I embossed it here in gold. I can think of a million ways to use this stamp.
