Picture in a Frame

My DH works in a treatment center for adolescents experiencing difficulty behaviorally and socially. One of their clients won a Turn-Around Award at school so I made this 8 x 10 picture for her using stamps and twinkling H2Os. The butterfly and the dragonfly are both from Stamp Zia and are so wonderful to color. The small butterflies are from a set I purchased at a yard sale. The sentiments are from Inkadinkado while the flowers are unmarked. I embossed all of them using versamark and gold detail powder. I used Black Disco powder on the sentiments.

The girl's favorite colors are orange, blues and greens so I did the butterfly in a combination of blues and the flowers were done in Golden Orange. I used Golden Rod stickles on the antenna and dotted areas.
The dragonfly has much more orange and greens on it. I also outlined the sections with gold and dotted with the stickles.

I used an 8x10 frame to hold the picture. I am very pleased with it....hope she knows how proud we all are of her.
Off to pick up one of the son had 2 interviews for jobs yesterday and was hired last night. We are so pleased with this. I hope you all have a wonderful day. I hope to get some stamping done the afternoon.
