Flower Framed

    Here's today's release coming from MHK Designs this month and I had so much fun making this card!  Of course, it didn't hurt that I did it entirely in purples, my favorite color.  :-D  The set is called "I've Been Framed" and you can see a photo of the entire set at the bottom of this post.


     My process for getting this image printed was a bit different than my usual "select and print."  First, I chose a dp from the MHK Designs "French Country" set (photo also at the bottom of this post) and printed it the size I wanted.  There are some gorgeous papers in that set and I chose the "Fern" in lavender.

     After printing the paper, I put it back into my printer and then printed the flower frame right onto the dp, adjusting the placement and size to fit the pre-printed dp sheet.  I used ProMarkers to color most of the flowers on the frame, choosing to leave a few uncolored so that they are white.

     I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to dry emboss the purple CS onto which I centered the image piece.  I also die cut a small scalloped oval piece (Spellbinders) and embossed it with the same folder.  Next, I printed the sentiment, hand cut it, and mounted it onto the embossed oval, then put that in the middle of the frame.

     Finally, I added the roses and the ribbons, and tied a triple-loop bow.
