Hardwood Frame - You Make the World a Better Place

Hardwood background stamp, my other favorite stamp from Stampin'Up's 2014 Occasions Mini Catalog!  This card was not what I had in mind when I decided to make a frame using the Hardwood Background stamp.  I love this paper from Fresh Prints Designer Paper Stack, it looks like wall paper when paired with the Hardwood background.  What do you think?  I love what I made so far and then I hit a wall!  I tried different layouts, embellishments, nothing works for me.  So the frame sat on my desk for almost two weeks.

I was playing with another card when these elements fell into place.  I finally came up with a layout I can "live with".  LOL!!!  I love this sentiment from the Starburst Sayings stamp set and the matching framelits dies.  I wanted the sentiment to be in red but not a solid red that's why I cut it up.  I don't remember piecing a sentiment before and doing so here, made all the difference.  I really like how this turned out.

Here is the full card.  I LOVE it.  Sponging the edges of the frame gave it some dimension, pretty neat effect!
