Temple Plaque

A friend of mine is in charge of the Super Saturday activity for our ward. She text me a picture of a temple plaque she liked and wanted to do and asked if I could be willing to make the display. Now, here is the picture she sent me. I want to state this plaque is not my work. It looks like she got it from Pintrest but she only sent me the picture not a link.
Cute huh! Well I decided to change it up a bit. So I stated with a 12x12 board. I lathered that bad boy up with mod podge and slapped on a pretty piece of paper. Then another sister in our ward skipped down to the Dallas temple, we are after all living in Dallas, and took a lovely picture which we printed in a 5x7. Stuck that to the board with some ribbon and a pretty flower and it was done, or maybe not. I wanted to distressing effect so I bought a Timber color ink pad and "antiqued" the edges. I didn't want to put the words in mine because I loved it how it was. But..., I felt bad making that decision on my own so I cut some vinyl on my silhouette. I started putting the vinyl on and after the word temple was in TOTALLY decided against it. You can hardly see it anyway. So here it is. When I get it back I think I'm going to take the word temple off. But we'll see. Anyway, this one IS my design. 

I really like it and can't wait to display it in the house.
