Picture Frames!

I've been meaning to try this forever, but I always forget to buy frames, but yesterday I happened to walk by them in walmart.

The pictures came out horrible. I took a bunch with and without flash, but either way, I couldn't get a good one. My camera doesn't like red at all! My living room is panted Cranberry Crisp (07 In Color) so I wanted to use that color in my frame. I also wanted to use brown since my couch is brown, and the yellow just went so well I threw it in too. Now I'm thinking maybe it's too bright. Please let me know what you think, as well as suggestions that go with the other two colors.

You probably can't tell from the picture, but the rub-on inside the scallop says you and me with a flower below. The one at the bottom says the sweetest thing. The Cranberry piece is pierced around the edges. The frame is 5 X 7 and the picture is 3 X 4. -Stamps-Boho Backgrounds
-Paper-Cranberry Crisp (retired), Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana and Whisper White.
-Ink-Close to Cocoa
-Accessories-Eastern Elegance rub-ons, Paper Piercing tool, mat pack, circle punches and scallop punch.

I made this one for my 9 month old nephew David. It holds a 5 X 7 picture (frame is 8 X 10). The ribbon is only attached on the back so a picture can easily be put in. The letters at the top are white chipboard (sorry, I have no idea what brand). I stamped on them with polka dots from Itty Bitty Backgrounds with Bashful Blue, but I don't think you can see that.
-Stamps-Nursery Necessities, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
-Paper-Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White; So Saffron and Bashful Blue Prints DSP.
-Ink-Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery
-Accessories-Chipboard letters and Celery grosgrain.

I think your frames turned out great. The color with the dab of yellow looks very nice.

I think the yellow really makes the photo pop. These turned out really well.

You have a Cranberry Crisp room in your house and I have a River Rock room here. LOL!
