Again the Design Team were supplied with images for this challenge from Delicious Doodles and being a Scot there is nothing I like better than what everyone (including myself) calls a weed. 
They are but I still love THISTLES and it is called St Andrew's Day Thistle.

The card I made is not a hard one but is one I like and looks stylish.

Inspired by Stamping WHW #018 - creating frames

On my last post I showed you a card I made for 
the Inspired by Stamping Ribbon Challenge. 
I am so happy that my name was picked out as the WINNER. 
I can now choose 2 packs of crochet trim and there is 
some beautiful ones there for me to choose. Whoo Hoo

Their new challenge is to create a card using a frame. 
Below you can click on the link to see how Joanne showed us how with her Tutorial.

How often do we use our dies but don't think of using 
2 together to create a lovely frame. 
That got me interested so I got to playing with 
some new Spellbinder dies to do just that.
This is what I came up with.

I used the following products for my card

Basic white card stock
DP - Old World Mat Stack
Spellbinders Opulent Ovals
Spellbinders Vintage Lace Motifs
Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder
Distress Ink - Iced Spruce
GinaK stamp - Assorted Greetings
MS Punches - Hydrangea and Leaves
Fancy That Leafy Swirl
Flower - CR1204 by Marianne Designs
Kaisercraft Pearls
Liquid Pearls 

I really enjoyed making this card for the challenge and hoping next time 
I will have some lovely IBS stamps on my next project for you to drool over.

Till then

and thanks for stopping by.
