Flowers are what the doctor ordered for this dreary day. I think that this oval frame die from Tim Holtz is quickly becoming one of my favorites. And to think, I thought I didn't need it.

To make my card I started with a kraft base card and the frame cut out of kraft paper. The inside of the frame is cut from a Tim Holtz metal foil tape sheet to represent a mirror. The flowers and vase is a SweetStamps stamp which I colored using distress markers. The sentiment is from Dyan Reaveley. The design paper and lace border is from my stash.

I am entering my card in the Kraft Journal challenge which is lace it up and in the SweetStamps challenge which is kraft paper.
