Core on Canvas

I wanted to make my new niece something for her nursery. I cannot tell you how wonderful it felt to do something a little on the girly side. Her room is a jungle theme, so that is why I chose this fun and funky green pattern paper by Crate. I had this very inexpensive canvas laying around so I painted the sides and edges a dark burgundy, I embossed my Core-dinations cardstock with a Sissix folder and then used my Dynomite to emboss her birth date. Since the canvas was stapled on the outside {the negative of buying cheap}, I covered the staples with this  velvet mauve ribbon by Maya Rd. I added some ribbon, a few buttons and an acrylic heart as a finishing touch. I hope they like it because I sure do!! I think that I may to a couple more for the boys when we move into the new house, I love cheap custom art!!!
