OK...so it is the last day to enter the challenge, but technically I am early because it is not within hours of the challenge deadline :) We are already to Challenge #25, hard to believe! It has been such a exciting and creative journey working through Tim's A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III. I can hardly wait for Volume IV. Many thanks to Linda Ledbetter, our gracious hostess and to Inspiration Emporium, the generous sponsor for this challenge. Challenge #25 is Frameworks and you will have to refer to page 64 of Tim's book for further details. I have created a birthday card for my daughter using the Courtyard Frameworks Die that I won from Paula Cheney in an Eclectic Elements prize pack.
The background is made using Faded Jeans Distress Ink through Tim's Gothic Stencil and embossed with clear embossing powder on Watercolor paper. I used Antique Linen Distress Ink along the edges and worked it throughout the design. I added Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to give it a more aged appearance.
I cut the Courtyard Framework die form Grungeboard, altered it and placed it the background.
I added the three roses made from the Tattered Pinecone Die accented with pearls from my stash,
The sentiment is stamped on light blue card stock and accented with the Courtyard Framework die as well.
I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
