I am so excited to share today's creation with you
First because I got to use a brand new die cut, and second because
It just turned out fabulous!
Soooooo, first of all I have been playing along with Designed to Color
To celebrate their 1000th Facebook fan
Their challenge is a scavenger hunt to find a recipe for a creation..
I Love scavenger hunts... I even had one for my 17th birthday!
So I found all the items I needed to use: a colored image, at least 2 patterned papers,
Bling, twine, and some doodling.
Here's what I came up with!
Yep, it's a picture frame!
Yesterday was half price day at the Goodwill, so I got this frame for 75 cents!
Can you see all my elements?
Why fall you say, since its105 degrees out STILL?
Well cause that's the challenge over at Dilly beans! One of my favorite
challenges! I just love the images Megan puts out!
Here's a close up.... And my doodling element is in the stripes in the background
So we've got the colored image, the doodling, and the patterned papers (with the leaves!)
Now we need some bling and twine!
with some glossy accents.... And did you notice that I sewed the center of all the leaves??
I LOVE this tattered leaves die that I picked up on clearance at Michaels!
And all of this was inspired by the challenge at Cut it Up Challenges which is
to create something from their fall inspired pictured, and of course to use something die cut!
Just a quick reminder that a project like this would be perfect over at
Anything but a Card where the challenge is to use texture!
So a recap, this pretty frame is being entered into the challenges at:
