Good morning my friends....today I am sharing a card and tag which I have created for two challenges, at Our Creative Corner where they are asking us to Frame It! using whatever medium you want create a frame and make it 3-D or raised up on your card and for Joan's Gardens where for the last challenge before they take a break for the summer they are asking for a matching card and tag.
I am really happy with these and there is no stamping on the outside, none, nada, zip....it is all done with the wonderful digital image sheets that I bought from the lovely Sharon at Plumrose Lane where she has these sheets in a variety of images, bookmarks, blog headers, and much more. Be sure and stop by for a look and to make it even sweeter, she is having a sale and giveaway. See my sidebar for a direct link to her blog and the sale.
Don't you love it when you see a challenge and you know exactly what you want to do?
Well, this is that time....the night before it was posted at OCC I had fussy cut all of these images and was just going to make a card for "fun" which I don't get to do much these days as there is always something else I am creating for, sure you know the feeling. And then when I saw Joan's request I had to just make a tag and combine the two.
My card base is tan leather paper from GinaK Designs with her chocolate brown. It was just a matter of layering the elements the way that I wanted along with some distressing and a couple of rubons.
I just adore the frame that she has in one of her sheets that is ready to go after cutting it out. I added some ribbon from Stampin' Up and a couple of glitter dots that I received in some blog candy and the card is finished.
For the tag....I used the tag that Sharon has in her sheet and attached it to two of the tags from Spellbinders Standard tag set since I wanted it to have a little more room. Don't you love the music score and what looks like a pink brad? Oh yes, almost forgot to give credit where due, the tan distressed paper you see on the right tag and behind my frame is some digital paper that I bought from Paulette at TLC . Be sure and check this out as she is always giving lovely things away as freebies.
Well, now that I have given you lots to think about and two new challenges, I had better get busy around the house. Blue skies and sunshine here and I wish a wonderful day to each of you. Hope to be by later for a visit with you.
