My Time to Craft Challenge #238 - Frame It!

Hello dear friends and followers - it's time for another weekly challenge at My Time to Craft Challenge Blog where I'm still delighting in the joy of being the Guest Designer for March :o)  MTCC Challenge #238 is "Frame It". We want to see a frame of some sort around your main image.  Here's my card to share with you this week (and hopefully inspire you to play along):
I used a new thinlit die cut for the photo frame. This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite dies to use.  I wanted it to look like Stella was leaning out of the frame a bit so I snipped around the image as closely as I could and then let the balloons go over the frame edge just a wee bit.  Then I made sure that the sentiment fit inside the frame where I wanted it to be before gluing Stella back in.  I love how the background paper almost looks as if it has a few swear works on it - goes along with the crabby look on Stella's face.  Quite happy with how it turned out overall - hope you like it too! :o).

The other lovely ladies over at MTCC have also made some beautiful creations to inspire you.  Please go visit them as well.  Hope to see your card linked up the the MTCC #238 gallery this week!
