Try It Out Tuesday #64--Frame It!!

Hello Everyone!  Today is Tuesday so that means another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge!  This week I challenged the team to create a frame around their image or on their card but it could not be a paper frame!  One of my favorite embellishments is buttons so I had to create a button frame for my card of course!!  I used one of my fave Victoria Case stamps called "Milla"--she's fantastic because she can be used for so many fun occasions.  This paper is NEW from Melissa Frances--I loved the lilac colors paired with a minty green--pretty & springlike.  The border punch I used is a new one from Martha Stewart--I love the delicate feeling it has.  I used my buttons to create a round frame behind the image in matching colors.  Those clear pearls circling the edge of the card were made with my Viva Decor Gloss Pen (in transparent)--you can sprinkle glitter on the top of them as well for more sparkle!

She's colored with Copics and then I also paper pieced her dress with the matching dp--I love to tie in the images with the rest of the card that way.  Remember when you're paper piecing to shade it like the rest of the image--here I used W3 & W1 to shade the edges.  Then I used the Viva Decor Glitter Liner (in holographic) on the stripes on her dress and her bows--this stuff is 100x sparklier than Stickles!!

Now scroll on down to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects for you today!
