A New Challenge

The challenge at Tando Creative is flower this time. Since I got these little house frames I wanted to make a pendant out of it. I stamped some flowers to the frame and I also made the tiny paper rosette. I glued the frame to a bigger flower and covered everything with glossy accent.
Have a creative Wednesday!
