Oops, Is That What Happens When You Forget The Title??

Hello.  Welcome.  Today was a day to craft.  Bad weather outside and Mr Postman brought crafty mail.  Definitely a day to craft.   Over at The Greeting Farm the challenge is Recycle and Cheery Lynn Designs want us to Frame It so.....

I started off with a piece of cardboard packaging.  I removed some of the top layer to expose the corrugations and painted it with thinned white paint.  I cut a frame in black card using Cheery Lynn Emperor Swan die.  I backed this with orange card, hand cut a layer of green mirror card to go behind and then another layer of orange card which I cut with some fancy scissors.

This is a stamp from The Greeting Farm Pretty Hat set.  I raided the scraps box and paper pieced her.  I used green half pearls from Storyteller for her necklace and the flowers were cut using Cheery Lynn Cutie 2 die.  This die arrived with Mr Postman today and I gotta say I was impressed how easy these were.  Cut and roll.  These are my first attempts.  Not too shabby huh?

I added some leaves from Storyteller, a couple more Cutie 2 flowers and a bought sentiment.  I mounted the panel on an oval card.

  7. What a great card and a fabulous interpretation of several challenge themes! I really liked how you framed in the cardboard. It almost looks like a cool forest or a picket fence behind our girl.

Such a clever creation and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
