So, since we've gotten the details out of the way I would like to share with you what I came up with.
I have decided to go masculine this time around. I had bought some of those unfinished wood frames you can get just about everywhere, I bought mine at Michael's for $1 ;D
I started out painting the entire frame with white Gesso, after that was dry I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang Star burst in Baby Blue Eyes Aqua (that one came with a dauber, so application was easy) let that dry and then I stamped the brand new Fishing Net Background in Memento Rich Cocoa and that was it as far as stamping was concerned on the frame. For the frame opening I cut a piece of card stock and adhered a piece of DP from the old Basic Grey Oxford paper pad on it and stamped the Fishing Boat from "The Waves on the Sea" in Steel Blue directly onto the DP, then the scripture Psalm 77:19 from the "Fishing" set and the insert was done.
Now came the fun part I added some Jute Twine and threaded some nautical charm and voila, my frame was done.
Have a look and see for yourself
