Framed Flowers

Over at Daring Cardmakers, the end of year challenge is actually 4!! They have picked the 4 best challenges to try, including "buttons", "ribbons", "and cut" and "frames". Here is one that uses a frame. I recieved the coolest package of KI Memories called Funky Frames and Labels from Rhea at R&R Scrapbooking! I love all the different colors and shapes that are included on the sheet. I used a pink one on THIS card. Here, I've picked this awesome light blue oval shape....don't you just love it!! I do. If you've been following my blog at all, you will know that I am trying to use, use, use the stuff I already have! See that flower background, it has been in my "to use" box for a long while now. Do you all have one of those?? You know, a box where you put the bits and pieces of stuff, like the other half of a One Sheet Wonder, a picture you've colored with prisma pencilcrayons and didn't use, etc. My box is quite full, so I am trying to use some of it! This particular background was originally made for THIS , my very first ATC that you can see on my SCS gallery. It is done by stamping the flowers with Versamark and embossing with white then smudging on some chalks (from Stampin' Up) to give it some color. I also had some images of this bee that I got from my SU demo a very long time ago. I colored him in using my SU chalks in yellow, brown and blue. Then I added some Waterfall Stickles to make his wing all glittery!! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb set stamped on white with Chocolate Chip ink. I like the overall look of the card. I really do love the Carte Postale set (SU) and find I use it over and over again! Thanks for visiting!!
