Framed in Flowers

Flowers 2012

Good morning everyone. I hope you have a wonderful Thursday. For some reason I just can’t sleep tonight so I thought I would get this uploaded know and them I would not have to do it in the morning. Over at The Outlawz at Twisted Thursday challenge for this week The challenge is create a card with die cuts and punches. How fun is that?? Stop by and check out all the card the design team made the girls out did themselves again. Then you can read what you have to do when you want to enter your card. I would love to see what you come up with.
The hardest part is trying to think of what to do. I know we all have so many punches and all these wonderful die cuts. Trying to be a little different. First I embossed my top layer of pearl paper color peach with Tim holtz alterations Bricked folder. I used one of the new Distress inks color ripe persimmon and applied it with a sponged all over the brick and it did highlight the the brick area.
Now to make the frame used Spellbinder Fleur De Lis square the largest one.
Spellbinders classic squares used the second larges and the next one down and taped with removable tape so they will not move and run them though my Big Shot. After that I had three pieces so I glued down the Fleur De Lis first then added some mounting foam to the small frame and centered it and I though it looked better with the pearl white in the back so I glued that down. I hope you understand that.
For the greens used Cherry lynn Tropic Flourish and Martha Steward Branch.

Added the Pearl pen in the center of the flowers colors Salmon, Sunny Yellow and Lilac. Put some ribbon from my stash on the card was going to put a bow but I really did not think it need it. I do hope you like my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I do hope you give the framed card a try it really was not had to do and you can use any kind of your Spellbinders that you have as long as you have one that will fit in the middle so you can make a frame and just pop it up.
