Pine Cones Frame

Good morning.
 Using the pine cones with branches I decided to make a frame for a die cut label
with sentiment to sit in.
I started by lining up the four corner stamps, then stamped the single pine cones to make a rectangle. The single cones are ideal as more can be stamped to make other sizes and shapes.
I stamped with Versafine Black ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. The edges were softened with Vintage Photo distress ink and the label was also coloured.
The sentiment is from Christmas Magic and embossed with gold powder. A little gold stickles was added to each pine cone but unfortunately it was difficult to see on the photograph. 
I have a large amount of small cards in my stash that will be used for neighbour cards this year and the pine cones make perfect corners for the stamped sentiment.
Many thanks for visiting
