You've been framed

My crafting pal who lives nearby doesn't really go for ribbons and such, but she tends to keep me in mind when she's in our local charity shop. The other day she produced a packet of pretty little oblong cardboard frames in lovely soft greens, already embellished with organza ribbon and thread. They screamed 'Penny Black Stickeroos' at me and I made this with one of them:

  I used:

- A6 cream linen card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Collage Flowers' set

-  already embellished frame, no idea who made them as there was no label at all on the packet

Such a quick and easy card to make. It has crossed my mind that it's an idea to try with Nestabilities, just cut frames and then embellish with little ties of organza ribbon and thread or cord.

Friday Feast will follow ASAP, just as soon as I write up the recipe. It's really quick and easy this week.
