You've Been Framed!

I've often admired frame cards on other blogs but have never had a go at making one. Inspired by a Tutorial and some stunning cards on This Blog I thought I'd give it a go.I went freestyle with the measurements though

I've used my Marij Rahder Suzy 5 stamps,I've never used the Seagull before and was pleased to at last find a card suitable for it,isn't he great! I coloured the image using Copics,added some paper string around the frame and found some peel off anchors in my stash and I used some Sizzix dies to cut the numbers.


I had so much fun making this card,I'm definitely going to make more of them.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Paper Sundaes 38,Something from your stash,
Alphabet Challenge,W for Wings,
TPC Challenge 36,Great outdoors,
Stampavie And More Challenge 110,More that one fold (takes several folds to make a frame card)
Karber Challenge 7,Hobbies and Leisure,
SP Colour Combo 67,Night of Navy,Marina Mist,River Rock,
I hope where ever you are that you are having better weather than the rain where I am,
thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
There's still time to make a card for this week's Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge
