Hello crafty friends!
Hope your Tuesday has started off wonderfully!
We have a new challenge starting today at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are challenging you to use a frame on your project!!  Frames can add so much to a card.  They can be simple with added decorations, or elaborate in their own way.  So much fun to use a frame on cards.
Here is what I came up with today:
I wasn't really sure how I was going to make this card at first.  I knew I wanted to use this image from our sponsor-MyGrafico, but didn't want to just put a frame around it and call it good.  Of course, this was the day my hubby was full of good ideas :)  He suggested making it part of the frame, and almost immediately I had my design!
It turned out exactly as I pictured it!  I went with purples and creams for my card.  Trying to use up some of the older papers I have been hoarding in my stash.  I think I hoard them because they are my favorites and I don't remember where I got them, so once I run out...there gone...but there are so many yummy new papers available that I need to update my stock...and that means making room!  Lol :)

I used my MS Doily Lace Edge punch for the center border and covered the purple center with a piece of lace I was able to get from my grandma's house when we were there visiting at Christmas.  It's so gorgeous, perfect for this card, and makes me smile knowing that a piece of my grandma's craft stock is on my card!
The frame is embossed with my Swiss Dots folder, and then I added 4 large pearls along the edge.  There are small amounts of glossy accents and glitter around the flowers in the image as well :)

Be sure to stop by the rest of the design teams blogs and see what they have created!!  Then come back and join in the fun!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge:
