Lace Frame And Cameo

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had 6" of snow here on Wednesday and snow flurries most of the day on Thursday.

My hubby was out shoveling snow early Wednesday morning and he built a snowman. He wanted me to take a photo so we could send it off to San Francisco for our 2 year old granddaughter, Phoenix Daisy. I posted it on Face Book and our family and friends loved it. It toppled over today because it wasn't quite so cold even though it was snowing.

I guess Punxsutawney Phil was wrong in his prediction of an early spring (lol)!! I am ready for warmer days and some Spring flowers. Only 12 more days until Spring hits the calendars anyway.

Now onto my card for today. On Friday's, I post over on the Great Impressions Stamp Blog as part of the design team. I may be a bit early but, I made one of my first cards for Mother's Day.

I used the Great Impressions Stamps "lace frame H212" and "cameo C414". I stamped them both in soft suede ink. The frames was fussy cut but it was really an easy cutting processing.  I layered them over Stampin-Up's poppy parade cardstock. I used the embossing folder "kassie's brocade" on this panel.

My background designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "attic boutique" collection. Layered it over soft suede cardstock. I used Spellbinders Matting Basics A & B dies to cut the layers. Makes it so easy.

My middle panel is soft suede cardstocks and over that I layered May Arts mesh ribbon and over that Stampin-Up's poppy parade ribbon.

My bow treatment is using the new Stampin-Up "vanilla flower trim".

That's my card for today.  So until next time......God bless.
