SweetStamps #150: Something New

Good morning sweeties!
Well I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday.   Me and mine are all currently sick with everything that is linked to a cold or flu!!  It is horrible!!  So I really hope that you all are doing much better than we are at the moment.   
Can you believe that today is New Years eve?  In a few hours, we will be celebrating the New Year!
Which brings me to today's challenge over at SweetStamps
This weeks theme is: 
For my project today, I am using a new frame that was sitting on my desk, new flower blooms from my blogging sister and a new stamp!  The frame, my husband picked up from Michael's awhile back.  It was for another project that I had in mind to work on.  I covered the frame with a primer and once it dried, I stamped and embossed the corner foliage.  I couldn't find my black paint, so I used my chalkboard paint!
I have added lots little details, that can't be seen just by looking at theses pictures. 
The die cut leaves have Inka Gold rubbed on them, which add beautiful shimmer.  In the inside lip of the frame, there is a crystal bling laid all along the inside.
