Inspirtational Art

Britt's birthday was Thursday, and after going to visit her for her graduation, I realized she really needed some artwork for her walls!  I had seen a new set of stamps at Taylored Expressions, with 3 different words, Grace, Faith, and Hope.  I wanted to make it into wall art, so set about figuring out how to make a set of 3 pieces.  This is my original inspiration:
And was translated to this:
I had found a display frame at Michael's which held a CD and the cover art for the CD.  It measured 6 1/2" x 12".  I needed a frame which would allow me to use 12 x 12 paper for the background, and this fit the bill!  I cut the letters using my Sans Serif dies for my Big Shot, and used the oh so cool Twitterpated Designer Papers!  I used my dimensionals under the letters, but since the frames were not meant for a lot of dimension, any embellishments had to be added to the top of the glass.  I die cut some butterflies and daisies for a little extra somethin'!  This was a super easy project, and pretty quick to do once I had decided how to lay it all out.  Here is the rest of the set.
