A frame card

Happy Saturday friends,
Firstly I would like to welcome my new followers. Thank you so much for joining my little group of friends. I hope you will find something here to inspire you and come back often, I also do love to read your comments,.

I also want to say how sad I feel at the tragic news of the Malaysian airline that was shot down. My heart goes out to the families and friends of the passengers. Having travelled on that airline and having family and friends in the Netherlands, It just makes me so sad.

It has been a busy week, still packing and sorting.... but I must say the craft studio will soon be looking very empty...then I can concentrate on the house. Our new place is coming along very nicely.

I made this card as a trial for a class that I will be teaching and found the tutorial at Cards and Scrap challenge blog

Paper - Pretty papers bloc from Marianne Designs. Noir & Blanc, inked the edges with bloack soot.
Image - Urban stamps from DoCrafts. ...Beautiful Folium. Stamped with Versamark watermark stamp pad and coloured with Pan Pastels.
Die cuts from Marianne Designs -my old favourites LR0192 and LR0157
Sentiment - Whiff of Joy
Finished off with pearls and ribbon bow.
 I even decorated the inside, but  forgot to take a photo...might add it in later.

I rather like this card and it is actually so easy to make.  Will show the card I made for the class later.
Will  enter it in some challenges.

On a lighter note I think this frame card is great and would make a lovely keepsake.

I love this card, great make with beautiful papers.

Agree about the terrible news about the Malaysian plane, what is the world coming to that things like this happen to innocent people going about their own life. The TV scenes from there are awful, I feel sorry for the families left behind who have to see what happened to their loved ones on the TV.
