BBTB2 - Frame Challenge

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! It is Monday and time again for a fun Cricut challenge at BBTB2. I am so excited to be part of this team with all the amazing and talented designers. Our challenge this week is to use a frame on a card or layout! Many of the Cricut cartridges have frame images and you can use a frame from any cartridge.
My card measures 5" x 7" and is cut from Colorbok white cardstock. The pretty double-sided patterned papers are scraps of K&Company paper pads. I love these papers and colors and the double sided papers work well together. I tore a bit of the floral paper at the top, inked the torn edges, and placed a scrap of plaid paper under it for added interest.
Cricut Cartridges:
Elegant Edges- Page 68 Oblong Frame is cut 4.25". I used the Oblong feature on shift cut at 4.25" for the blackout image. This is cut from a pretty pale green vellum paper. If you look closer, you may be able to see the floral patterned paper under the frame. I added a pink vellum under the little cutouts of the frame, but it does not show well in the photo.
Walk In My Garden - Page 98 Rose is cut 2.37". This is one of my favorite rose images.
Florals Embellished - Page 60 The word Grandma is cut .75".

Cuttlebug: Swiss Dots Folder is used on the green vellum. The embossing added a bit of white to the dots!

Other supplies:
Rosette is a 3/4" wide strip of the plaid paper. Paper is scored, inked, and folded to create the rosette. With the pink on the outside, the rosette has a unique look of its own. I added a strip of lace under the rosette. The pearl button is from my stash. I like using buttons on the centers of rosettes- easy to glue the shank in the opening.
Recollections pearls
Dew Drop Versa Magic Gingerbread inking
