Merry Monday ~ Frame It!

Merry Monday Challenge is looking for Christmas Cards with a frame on it!
I really jazzed up this frame, first I stamped the frame with Lawn Fawn's Woodgrain Backdrop, then I sponged on some vintage photo distress ink, but after I did that I thought it would look good in gold, so I went over the whole thing with gold Wink of Stella!!
My Amaryllis is a W Plus 9 stamp colored with some watercolor inks and also some zig real brush inks.  The gold embossed sentiment is from Paper Smooches:  A Blessed Christmas.
I always buy an amaryllis bulb at Christmas time, they are so beautiful!
 
My Dad is being transported to his Rehab care center, so I am going to head out now and make sure he gets checked in okay and is happy!
