The winner will be announced March 16th!  So, get hopping and enjoy all the inspiration using for the Love of ODBD Borders and Frames!
Today I'm featuring the Flower Frames 2 and decided to show it off by using it to frame this beautiful scene from the Missing You set.  I've stamped the frame in Memento Bamboo Leaves onto X-press It Blending Card and then stamped the fence scene in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured it with Copic Markers.  Then I hand cut the frame and matted it with blue bazzill cut with Lacey Square Nestabilities.  The base is constructed of Old Olive, White and two pieces of MME Breeze DP and topped with blue and white satin ribbons.  The image was popped up on foam tape and then I've stamped the sentiment - also from Missing You - in Tuxedo Black across the bottom.  To finish off, I've added a couple of MS punched butterflies and added a couple of yellow pearls to the bodies.

Stamps - Flower Frames 2, Missing You (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Old Olive, White, Blue Bazzill, MME Breeze DP.
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Bamboo Leaves
Accessories - Copics, Lacey Square Nestabilities, Blue and White Satin Ribbons, MS Butterfly Punch, Kaisercraft Yellow Pearls, Foam Tape.

The next stop on the hop is the sweet and amazingly talented SILKE LEDLOW!!!

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!!!  :)

Hi Kathy~

I absolutely love how you made the frame a part of the scene...the lush greens of the plants. And, the blue die cut behind the image seems like the sky to me. Very clever. I love your coloring of thr flowers...those purples are gorgeous! The design papers are just lovely with that horizontal ribbon. Wonderful and Fresh!
