Finally Framed!

Hello and happy, happy Saturday! I have my Monthly Magnolia-licious card done! The excellent Janiel has given us the challenge for March! It is to include a frame somehow in your project and use the rest of the recipe she gives us as well. (bling or pearls, ribbon or trim, flowers, and, of course a Maggie image! You can read complete details on the blog HERE! For my card I used #275 TILDA WITH LACE JEANS from the new Butterfly Dreams collection. I think she looks like she's leaning over to look at the flowers coming out of the ground or at some small creature on the ground. My flowers are #427 LAZY SUMMER FLOWERS and a small ladybug which is probably from one of the kits from Sweden. I looked and looked for my snail and had all kinds of images out to try in my scene before settling on these two. The possibilities are nearly endless!


My paper is from My Mind's Eye (I've mentioned how much I love the new Stella and Rose patterns!). I made a frame with directions from Linda Duke when she previewed some of the new Spellbinder's dies we are all waiting for! The link is on my laptop which my 'computer guy' (my nephew A.J.) has right now. I'll link the directions when I can get to them again. I believe I linked them before on my blog when I used this idea on a card. One of my favorite parts is the little scrap strips I found on my table and added! They are the reverse side of the flowered paper! My card is 5.5" square.
Tilda is again raised with gel glue so there is quite a bit of dimension to the card.
Okay, please consider playing along with us! You have all month to do so!
Thanks so much for looking!
Cheryl
