Thank You

The challenge this week for Papercraft Star is to use a frame. There is always a photo you can use as inspiration if you choose. I decided to use a metal plate to frame a rose. The roses are from a digital sheet from The House Across The Bay called Botanical Roses 064.
I was inspired by a card on page 12 from my the Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 catalog. I used Crumb cake ink on the Very Vintage jumbo wheel for a subtle design on the kraft card stock. The scalloped edge was made with a punch using Close To Cocoa card stock. The pattern on the pink textured card stock was made by using Close To Cocoa ink with the Belle wheel. The seam binding ribbon is color is called Crumb Cake. The "Thank You" sentiment is also from Stampin' Up! The set is retired, I think it was called Artistically Asian. I fussy cut two roses for inside the frame and layered them by using some Helmar Zap Dot foam mounting squares to give them some dimension.
I hope that you will come play along with us this week!
