March is coming in with a real bang. Our weather has been in the high 80's
and supposed to continue for the next couple weeks at least. Now thats nice
but considering we are not close to summer yet,
I think we are in for a Very Long & Hot summer
here in the desert!! Too bad I can't send some along to some
of you who are still having freezing weather!
So our first Tuesday Throwdown Challenge for the month of March is Frame It.
Our Sponsor is My Grafico has provided us with one of the
GREAT Sets of Frames.
They come in black and in color so I have used both for my cards.
I have actually made a set of black and of color. I won't post them all or you will be
scrolling for way to long! So just showing you a couple. The first one
is the round green one. This is my first shaker card. I added
some old sequins I found in some of my art supplies and also
some beads but they all fell to the bottom so
you cant see them. The green floral trim was also from my stash.
Some green sparkles down the center and voila!
Second one is the peach colored star. There is also a pink and an aqua rectangle.
The same 4 frames are in black as well.
I used a swirled embossing folder for the background. Mounted the star
on some brown and cut it out to help show it up a little better
. A looped die border that I think might be PTI but not sure.
I also added a string of
peachy colored pearls to give it a softer look.
Honestly my cards aren't cut crooked!! I didnt realize how crooked the pics were.
