Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 1 June 2012

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge.  This month we are being challenges to "frameworthy" ie use a frame on your card or project.
I needed to make a special birthday card so I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching Chou-Kuik called "love is gone".  I coloured the image in with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and then die-cut the image and used a chalk ink pad around the edges.  I then embossed a frame embossing folder (not sure of the make as it's not written on the folder) and then used the same chalk ink pad to edge.
The backing papers I have used are from the Bearly Mine Designs Floral Dreams Digi Kit and also the Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots Digi Kit.  I have done LOTS of matting and layering and also cut in half a die-cut Marianne Designs Circle die-cut and also inked the edges to match.  The card has been finished off with some lace, ribbon My Craft Studio Click-Print-Go flowers with Papermania Glitterations to their centres, gems, three dimensional acetate butterfly and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Happy birthday to someone special - congratulations on your third birthday
Love to Create - Add a sentiment
Whoopsi Daisy - Fairy image
There's Magic in the Air - BINGO board (I have chosen 2 or more patterned papers, lace and bling)
Hooked on Craft - All that glitters
Oldie but a Goodie - Anything goes (stamp is more than six months old)
Cards and More - Dotted and embossed
Shopping our Stash - May flowers (I have used up some gems I've had for ages. I hadn't used them as they weren't adhesive stones but thankfully my Collal glue gel came to the rescue)
Scrap Creations - fairies
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything goes
Crafting for all Seasons - many layers
Crafts and Me - Add a ribbon
Simon Says - Anything goes
Shelly's Images - Pick 2 items from the list (well I've got 5 - ribbon, bling, flowers, markers and a monochromatic scheme - hope that's OK)
Unique Crafters - Ribbon and fibres
