Frame it!!!

Hello Everyone - it's been awhile since I have been able to work on anything - I have been way to busy at home and I am training someone at work right now (and we all know there is where I can get most of my stamping done). So here is what I made this morning for Ann's challenge this week called You've been framed!! The challenge was to make something in a frame. I took a piece of the cardstock that comes in with the scrapbook sets and cut it into 5 1/2x 4 1/4 pieces, taped the 4 pieces together and ran them through the Big shot using the top note die to make my frame. I colored the frame with Night of navy blue marker. Before attaching it to my card I stamped the flower background using pocket silhouettes in So saffron, Old olive, and Always artichoke. I stamped the butterflys from the Branch out stamp set in pretty in pink, and sage shadow. After attaching my frame I used a saying from Thoughts and Prayers - using the large and medium oval punches and some dimensionals attached that. The butterflies on the outside are from a non stampin up punch but the paper is stampin up pretty in pink, and sage shadow. Be sure to join in on Ann's challenges each week.
