Wanted Birthday

My best friend is turning 50 in a week. I wanted to make her a card that she could frame and use later if she wanted. I had her daughter email me a photo of when she was younger and this is what I came up with.
I used Wanted by Stampin' Up! The base card is SU Chocolate Chip. I used Really Rust CS the Outlaw Designer Paper for the layers. The frame is done with a Sizzix die cut. I used the Cutter Kit to distress the Really Rust layer. I punched the corners of the Outlaw paper with the Ticker Corner punch and then added the mini deco fasteners from the Vintage group. The little circles on the corners of the frame are stamped onto Chocolate Chip cardstock with Vanilla Craft in and embossed with Clear EP , punched with the 1/4" circle and then popped up with dimensionals. The large medallion is stamped with Basic Brown onto Really Rust CS and punched with the Scallop Circle punch. I used another image from the set and just stamped with the Vanilla craft ink and punched with the 3/4 " circle punch. I stamped the small image again on a length of Twill Tape with Basic Brown ink and tied around and taped on the back. I love how this turned out! Wasn't sure if I like this set at first, but am loving it now!!!!
