Elegantly Framed

Front

Inside
This week the challenge at Cheery Lynn is frame it. I used the Stand-Alone technique from the February/March 2009 Online Bonus Technique of Technique Junkies to make the card base. I did increase the card size for this project. The card is actually dimensional  as can be seen in this next picture.
 The frame die I used for my card is the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame. I think it is such an elegant look. I actually cut it a second time to use a part of it as embellishment on the side triangular flaps. Note that I used the inner piece from the cutting of the frame for the inside sentiment on my card. The image and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs. For added embellishment for the frame and image I made roses using the miniature rose die. I cut them from yellow paper and edged them with rusty hinge distress ink. All of the paper used is from Club Scrap.
I am also entering this card in the Our Daily Bread Design challenge which is other than a square or rectangle and the Classy Cards 'n Such challenge which is flowers. (Cheery Lynn dies qualify for the CCnS challenge).
