Fun With Squares Challenge and Name Frame

Tonight I completed a name frame I started working on this afternoon...well I totally revamped what I originally started with as it wasn't working for one of the long name frames.

The picture to the left is actually a challenge Anna Wight had, called Fun with Squares. This was the perfect and easy sketch to use for the baby card I needed to make to go with the frame.

The frame a square wood one I bought for like $1 last year...I got 2 of them and they have collected dust in my cabinet so when the first frame I attempted wasn't working out the say I wanted it to, I brought this one out. Connie Babbert was sweet enough to stamp me some images of the Wanted and Bronc Buster set, most of which I didn't even end up using, but will at another time on some cards. Thanks Connie!

I used sticky tape to adhere the paper to the frame and then cut around the edges and sanded them down. I then stippled some color on to the edges. I decided not to paint or do anything to the frame itself except cover the front as they them in the room is Western/Cowboys and thought that the exposed wood frame would work well.
