Waiting for "Framed"

Last night was PTI's September Release and I used amazing restraint and only bought one stamp set. I was so inspired by Nichole's card here:
My husband asked me to make a card for him to give to a co-worker who just received a promotion. He has never asked me to make a card for him before, so when he did, I immediately thought of Nichole's card. He needs the card right away, so I couldn't wait until I get my new set, so I tried to draw the lines myself. Not good. Then I remembered the frame image in Take Note. It is longer and more narrow than the frames in Becky's set, but I thought it might work in the meantime. I masked off an area for the sentiment. That's another story. My husband didn't want any of the really cute sentiments I have, only the words Congratulations. I thought it was a bit long for this frame, but in the end, I think the card turned out like pretty similar to the one Nichole created. I bought the pretty flowers at Michael's and adhered them with glue dots. The edges of the cream mat are inked with Tea Dye. Thanks for taking a look!
