In the frame

Good  morning. Well it's Saturday (again) - were did the last week go??? So today sees a new challenge theme at Allsorts and this week it's the lovely Brenda that has picked


We are sponsored by the lovely Sally-Ann at Digi Stamp Boutique - our regular first of the month sponsor and 1 lucky winner will receive SIX images of their choice - and there are some stunning images to choose from.
I was asked by my friend to make a pretty girlie card for a little girl.
I have used the very pretty Fifi and Flowers - colured with PM's
I took inspiration for my card from an article in this month's Simply Cards magazine by Clare Rowlands about framing the image.

I started by creating the frame using Labels 4 - using the largest one for the Design Paper and then the next size down for the co-ordinating cardstock. Before adhering the frame I added some ribbons from stash.
The image was placed direct to the base card and the 'frame' then 3d on top.
A few scrummy Wild Orchis Flowers and a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish it off.

Challenges I would like to enter are:

Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Spring
Digital Tuesday - For the Kids
Creative Card Crew - For a Child

Thanks for popping over.
Have a wonderful day.
