So, this picture frame was that one prospective project that sits around forever. 
When I found the frame again, it was in need of some love.

I took scissors to card stock and used paper ribbon to connect them, for a floating effect.
I was going for a somewhat whimsical effect, so I just free-handed the cards and pictures.
There are also some buttons and glitter present.   Smiley

Some close-ups!

Excuse the skull with Cincinnati Reds hat on, and the Halloween candles. I'm a bit early, I know.  Wink

My favorite one is the elephant, because it has a circus-likeness but I also adore the dragonfly.

I plan to change the cards, somewhat seasonally, because there is a lot of things I would have done differently, i.e. fishing line and a hole-puncher.

Let me know what you think! Smiley

Great display! I can see this as being a fantastic way to display a collection of favorite ATCs.
I really like the white silhouette ones.
