A Floral Frame …

Hello friends,

My second card for Christine’s blog, Hope & Chances Creativity , features the beautiful Spellbinders Shapeabilities Card Fronts die set “Floral”. I decided to add a vintage look to the card by trimming away the floral background to create a delicate frame for the vintage scrap from Graphic 45. I was so pleased with the outcome as it gives so much depth to the picture of the adorable girl in the garden. I also added some tiny butterflies from the Spellbinders Die D’Lites “Flutter Love”.
