Lily Pad Cards Frames, Dies & Dimensions Challenge

Happy Friday, all! The Frames, Dies & Dimenstions Challenge over at Lily Pad Cards is sponsored by Globecraft Memories. Here is what I made for the challenge:


It was so much fun to make this card! I used the globe card from Globecraft Memories. I have never made cards using these frames before, but they really give a nice finished look to your card.


I used the beautiful Flower Girl from Mo's Digital Pencil for my card. I was thinking that some of you may have photos of your girls as flower girls and this would make a beautiful photo frame! =) I colored an extra dress, cut it out then pop dotted it over the original one.


I made the ribbon flower following my sweet and talented friend Anita's tutorial here. I used a piece of barn door distress ink dyed seam binding for my flower. Thanks for the wonderful video, Anita! =)



The patterned paper is from the Sweetness collection by Pink Paislee.

Don't forget to go to Lily Pad Cards for all the details for the challenge and check out what the other Dream Team members came up with for this challenge.

Hope you can join us this week!

p.s. some exciting news here! =)
