Aspen Blog Hop

I hope your holidays were wonderful! Today we're celebrating the December Aspen collection.

I just love the Wood Grain Embossing Folder included in the Aspen Lite kit. I knew my project had to incorporate it somehow. There are also a number of quotes on the Aspen rubber stamps that I really liked. So how could I put the two together? This is what I came up with:

UM stamped onto 8-1/2 x 11" Print
A fun little art piece that showcases the faux wood frame and one of my favorite UM quotes. Here's a close up of the faux wood frame:
