Flourishes Frame It!

The next challenge on the Flourishes agenda is to FRAME IT OUT!!!  There are so many possibilities for this challenge!!!  I decided to use the Spellbinders Classic Frame die to frame the image from Cottage Home.  :)  Want to play along??  Link your creation to the Mr Linky on the Flourishes Blog and if you upload to SCS use the keyword FTTC52E!!

I started with a base of Old Olive and layered with white and some So Saffron DSP.  Across the bottom I added more Old Olive embossed with Swiss Dots and punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice Punch.  Across this panel I added some white white satin ribbon and a bow made with the Bow Easy.  I stamped the cottage image in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with markers and a blender pen and added the sentiment from the same set to the top corner.  I used the Spellbinders Classic Frame to cut out the image and also to cut out some light green bazzill for the outer frame.  I sponged the embossed parts in Close to Cocoa and popped it up to give a shadow box effect for the image.  To finish I added some Sweet Pea Flowersoft to the cottage 'garden'.

Stamps - Cottage Home (Flourishes)
Paper - Old Olive, White, So Saffron DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Classic Frame Framabilities, Sweet Pea Flowersoft, Swiss Dots EF, White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Markers, Blender Pen, Dauber, Foam Tape.

There's still another challenge coming so pop back soon!!!  :)

I love the frame for the little house. The classic frame is just perfect with the fence and trees. The border on the bottom also adds a touch of elegance to the card.
