Frame It!!

Good Morning Friends!
It is a very dark and gloomy morning here
and looks like that is to be our weather for the entire Holiday!!

I decided to "lift" my spirits by making a pretty "sparkley" card!!
I struggled to get a good picture in all the gloom and wish you could
see how gorgeous this really is...oh well, "nuthin" I can do about that!!

I made this card for the "Frame It" challenge at "Cherry Lynn Designs" .
When looking through my Cheery Lynn dies, I came across my
"Dutch Scallop Square Frame".
I love all the detail in this and thought how pretty it would be made out
of a silver glitter paper!!
Plus I hadn't used this die a awhile and it "felt good" to get it out!

I framed a piece of a print from the gorgeous "Graphic 45 Botanical Tea" papers!
You probably can't see it, but I embossed underneath first and added a piece of
scrap lace to the top as it was sitting on my desk and fit perfectly!!

I added a pink satin bow with gem and finished off with a 
layered butterfly from
Cheery Lynn Designs Tiny Things With Wings set.

I will be back tomorrow with another project...stop in!!

Isn't sparkle wonderful? I think the photo is great. It's totally gorgeous and I know it's even more amazing in real life. The die cut butterfly is so delicate and pretty. Of course, love the sparkly frame and what you put inside, as well!
