Framed Nasturtiums


Happy Sunday!

A while back I recieved a message from Julie at Flourishes, asking if I wanted to be the Limelight Designer of December over at the Flourishes Newsletter. I can`t even tell you how excited I was!! It is such an honor, so thank you so much, Julie!

This is my first card for the Limelight month. I chose to work with the beautiful Nasturtiums set, and colored it with Distress Inks.
I used Spellbinders dies to create the frame, and If you are interested in seeing a little step-by-step instruction on how to make it, simply head over to the Flourishes Newsletter!
The background is cuttlebug embossed, and I pierced around the edges with the Victorian borderabilities set from Spellbinders.

Thanks so much for visiting, and have a wonderful day!
