Make It Monday #263 - Background Building With Frames

Hello friends.  The challenge this week at Make It Monday has Amy Sheffer showing how to use smaller frame die cuts as a part of your background...LOVED it!  And of course Amy's card was fabulous and I wanted nothing more than to completely copy it, but I refrained kind of, and went with the same layout and stamp set, but used Fall colors and different frames.

 
I started by blending Melon Berry and Canyon Clay inks on my cardstock, then did a bit of splattering with water and Canyon Clay ink.  Next I added frames from the Stained Glass set in white...perfect size and shapes for this challenge.  Then I simply stamped and die cut the images from Holiday Greens using Classic Kraft, Melon Berry, Canyon Clay, & Ocean Tides inks from PTI and Baked Brown Sugar and Soft Suede inks from SU!.  My sentiment is from the Inspired: Prayer set, and I die cut and stacked several of the "Prayer" and heat embossed in white the rest of the sentiment on a Soft Suede banner strip.  A couple of PPP iridescent sequins finished off my card.

Make sure you check out Amy's beautiful card and all the rest of the lovely cards in the gallery for inspiration, and then play along HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
