4x5 Formica Altered Discontinued Sample

I just love this stamp set. It retired a couple of years ago but I just keep going back to it. SU: It takes a long time to grow an old friend.
I attached a discontinued scrapbook paper with a light fern design on it to the back of a 4x5 discontinued Formica sample using SU glue stick.
I then embossed in gold the image and watercolored it. I wrapped it in gold cord and attached a little shell on the tie.
I found a little brass frame that just fit the sample, and I also put a magnet on the 'front' of the Formica (which is the back of my creation) just in case someone doesn't like the frame, they can put it on their fridge.
