Comeback Series - 1 "Photo frame as a gift"

Hello people,

Hope all is well. I am back with my promise of introducing the comeback series for my readers. This is the first post of the comeback series. Its a photo frame, I made for my best friend who was going to Germany to be reunited with her husband and I really wanted to gift her something very special and personalised. 

Of course, I had the option to buy, but we all know how special it is when it is handmade :D.

Well so, I had an IKEA photo frame lying with me for at least one year, as I bought them in London but didn't use them for I was saving them for my crafting experiments. :P However, little did I know at that time that they would turn out as perfect gifting solutions as my friend loved the frame and its proudly sitting in her drawing room now with their wedding pic.
This is how it looked as I started with it
I am sorry that I didn't take pictures right from the beginning as I was rushing (it was her last day in India) and was desperate to finish it asap. But I can always write about how I did it :D
The checkered background I have used is a printed film with an adhesive backing which I bought in UK as well. I covered the whole frame with it and since it had an adhesive backing, it stuck all nicely to the wooden frame. (I wanted to use a girly color, something representing a fresh start. Since she was going to be with the love of her life, pink and red seemed to be the obvious choice for me. )After that I just randomly started laying out quilled designs in the corresponding colors trying to fill in the space as much as possible.
Finally I added some stones which were lying with me from my glass painting days to add a little bit of bling to the whole thing as I found it really dull looking otherwise. But nevertheless, it came out pretty much nice in just one hour :p. Here is one final pic. 
Please do tell me your views about this photo frame. 

Just Love Crafts xx
