Sir Stampalot September Challenge "It's a Frame Up"

Good morning!

It's the first of September and time for another challenge at Sir Stampalot. The theme for this month's challenge is "It's a Frame Up" and we would like to see a frame as part of your project.

I have used Spellbinders Nestabilities "Labels 10" to make the base card. I call these my LEMON nesties and love this shape for a card.

I used yellow card for the base and stamped over this with Hero Arts F5042 "Leaf Flourish" stamp using Memento "Angel Pink" Ink. The designer paper is by Brenda Pinnick from an old QVC kit and the sentiment sticker is from the same kit. The frame is from a Basic Grey "Two Scoop" Chip Stickers Kit and I've embellished it with some flat back pearls and paper flowers.

I'm quite pleased with myself as I used up some of my older stash to make this card.

Sir Stampalot have donated this fantastic prize for the winner of this month's challenge.

I do hope you can join us this month and look forward to visiting all the entries.

Best wishes, Clare xx
