Framing Up Some Love

 Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  My snowmen have been put back in the closet.  Now I am framing up some LOVE!  ;-)
 
 
 
 I found THIS PRINTABLE at Fleece Fun (dot) com.  How pretty!  Angel actually created it in a gorgeous gold, but in my 1935 old rock farmhouse, gold just didn't feel quite right.  I printed it again in black and white, but didn't like the rose all gray!  ;-)  Compromise time!  I used the black and white letters with a red rose from the original color palette!  The paper is textured, off-white, resume weight in hopes of making the letters look a bit vintage.

 
 Angel's letters are actually 4 x 6, but I didn't have enough 4 x 6 frames, so when I cut them out, I added a half inch all around the edges and then placed the letters in mis-matched 5 x 7 frames.  I absolutely *LOVE* the final results!

 
 'Perfect on top of a black dresser against a red wall!  I may add some wedding photos around it! 

What are your favorite Valentine's Day projects?
