A few weekends ago, my husband and I were cleaning out the guest room closet (aka where everything gets shoved to get forgotten) and I found a big, black frame with an old joke diploma in it that I didn't need any more. A little goo gone later (to get rid of the label that had been affixed to the front), I had a clean black frame.
To make the white background, I found our thickest wrapping paper and just taped it on backwards. The words were cut with Lyrical Letters. If I could do it again, I would probably make them smaller, but I didn't feel like wasting more black cardstock, because it's like gold in my craft room, so I left it. Everything doesn't have to be perfect, right?
Then I made some roses out of coffee filters that I had dyed with food coloring. I like things to be free as much as possible. I hot-glued them onto the corner. Granted, I don't think mine looks as good as the one at Craftaholics Anonymous, but that's why she's a professional crafter and I'm just tinkering in my craft room. :)
I plan to use it to remind myself of various craft ideas that I've had and occasions that are coming up that I need to make cards for. :)

In the time between when I first made the frame and when I ripped it, I got Baby Steps, and I absolutely love the font, so I used it on my replacement board. Here it is:
