365 Cards - #118 I've Been Framed

Well there was much excitement over at 365 Cards yesterday over who was following rules and who wasn't, but it was all in good fun and that's what this is all about ladies good clean fun!! I so enjoy the comrarderie of everyone on this challenge blog, it's warm, friendly and inviting. Thanks girls for creating a space where everyone feels comfortable. Today the challenge was to create a frame on your card. . .that's it! Otherwise anything goes. You don't have to tell me twice. So I decided to use my Storybook cartridge in my Cricut for the frame and the wording lol and all I had to do was add a flower and it was a done deal. However I did use my Cuttlebug for the white cardstock and used the Swiss Dots EF which is my absolute favourite.

I look forward to seeing what everyone else's interpretation is of this challenge.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Whisper White and Soft Sky (deceased) cardstock. DCWV designer paper for the frame and the deeper blue cardstock. Bella flowers. SU Itty Bitty backgrounds on the top flower. SU Taken With Teal stamp pad. SU Build A Brad. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF.

Gorgeous card! I love the pattern of the paper you used for the frame! I have three CB folders and Swiss Dots is one of them! It is so versatile!
