I bought this frame from a local thrift store for $2.99 and knew it would be perfect to help decorate my niece's new Tinker bell themed room. The cart used was Disney's Tinker Bell and Friends. The background paper, cardstock. ribbon and buttons are all SU. I added an extra black shadow cut on the background paper before adding the already pink shadowed cuts to give the Tinker bell and the phrase more depth once they were added with pop dots to the frame. The blue elements were also sprayed with smooch spray to give the wings and swirl a shine.
Now my niece has the perfect place to hang her robe and coat...with her new friend Tinker Bell!


  1. I love this! It fits the overall shape of the wall hanging perfectly. I can't believe you found it for 2.99...excellent!!!!
    The extra black shadow really made it POP...I will be trying this trick out when I actually USE the Tink cart I have had for over a year.
    TFS good luck!


  2. You are so very talented! Love this project.


Thank you for leaving some love! I hope to see you back!
