Framed Serenity

This framed Serenity Prayer combines two challenges. The first is Julia's Ways to Use it Frugal Finds(WT207). I purchase several sets these hanging frames a few years ago at the Target dollar spot. Except I think they were $2.50 a set. I have not done a lot with them. As I was going through the Room Service Home website, I came across this desk set. Immediately, I was drawn toward the dry erase hanging in the background and I remembered my frames. A frugal find is only a frugal find if it is used, otherwise it is wasted money. So, I am finally using my frames!!!

I thought the frame would look wonderful with tomorrow's Our Daily Bread Designs Serenity Prayer release. Thanks, Stef for great inspiration, and thanks to Julia for an awesome frugal finds challenge.

I embossed the prayer on textured cream cardstock using versa mark and black ep. I love the elegant simplicity of just the embossed prayer with nothing else added. I chose not to do anything else to it except switch out the ribbon hanger to black gingham. What do you think? I think I will hang this one in my craft room. It is a great gift idea whether it is a prayer or a scripture.
