Picture frame,

Hi guys sorry meant to have this up sooner,but been out with my daughter.
over at Creative Craft this week the challenge is anything but a card and the team have come up with some, brilliant projects for you to feast your eyes on this week.
We have 2 sponsers again this week and they are Stampin Dragon and love to stamp.

So I made this picture frame using one of my SK images to place inside,cutting around the frame was bit tricky but worth it. So here it is.

I have used my pencils and distress inks on them then just added some glitter onto the flowers.

As I  was getting inky I thought I would get on with my LIM card as its one layer card using inks,so I inked up some bubble wrap to make the background so here it is,hope you like it I used brilliance ink pads,red touch of green and tiny bit of blue then used the black brilliance ink for the flower and sentiment.


So there you go my submission for LIM this week,and my DT card,thank you for your support on our blog it means such a lot to me a the girls,nearly got all our followers back so bless you for that.
Just before I go just want to say hello to another follwer to my blog thanks hun for adding to my list.

That bubble wrap has certainly made a great impression for your LIM card. I think I may have chosen to have a little more of the plant overlapping it, but it's just great as it is.
Thanks so much
