Bird Frame

More goodies from the yard sale at the stamp store, I bought a package of embossing folders that were all frames.


I sanded down the cardstock after embossing to bring it out a bit more.  I used the same pattern paper for both the sentiment and the punched flowers that I shaped with my stylus and a foam mat. Stickles to the center of the flowers and some wink of stella clear to the dots and birds eye along the frame.  Added a row of bling and it was done :)

I am linking with the CropStop Blog HERE .

Darcie -- Bird in Border embossing folder
Tim Holtz -- Distress collection core'dinations cardstock
Spellbinders -- Sentiments one die set
Darcie -- Bling on a roll, added w/scor pal tape
Cloud 9 designs - Christy & friends paper, flower and sentiment
EK Success -- Flowers punch
Stickles - worn lipstick, center of flowers
Wink of Stella- added to dots on embossing and bird's eye

Hope your weekend is off to a good start and hope all those affected by the smoke and fires are getting some relief.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know you have,

Connie

Ack! Love the frame and what a coincidence as I have this one out on my table to use on a card whenever I have my next stamping day. I'm so nuts about Core'dinations paper. The sanding really brings out the pattern. Love the flowers in the corner and the matching sentiment. So cute, Connie!
