LEJ Designs DT - anything but a card

This morning I am sharing with you the design that I have created for the LEJ designs challenge - anything but a card... I was very late posting this project as I was having trouble printing - but I am so pleased with the result... This brilliant design Cinders  (available here) was great to work with...

I decided that I would create an altered photo frame using Cinders as the focal point for the front. She was lovely to work with, the detail of the dress is lovely to colour and I added depth by letting the colour dry and then applying another layer of colour. I chose pink for her dress and use complimenting DSP and accessories to decorate with...

I used a doily for the centre of the frame and added a couple of roses for to the bottom, three buttons to the top right hand side of the frame and three velum butterflies to the top left...
On the inside I used flowers and dots and a few pearls... I also created a frame tag using a penny black verse that I have and decorated this in the same pink used to colour my image...
I hope that you will join in the challenge this week as there are some great prizes on offer -
