I used the Tommy Paper Packet as well as the Tommy Complements Canvas Shapes. I simply cut strips of one of the patterned papers to cover the outside edges. I could have left it black, but I found that adding the paper around the frame allowed for a little more contrast and added to the overall "nautical" feel. Here are a couple of close-ups:
I also used one of my favorite all time CTMH alphabet stamp sets -- Token Alphabet. What I love about this stamp set is that you can punch out circle pieces using a 1" or 1-1/4" punch and the letter will fit perfectly. You can then use of the background stamps included with the set and create a custom-colored background for the letter.
In keeping with the theme, I also made her a quick card.
