Beautiful Bella Picture Frame Card

Hello Friends and Visitors.
Welcome to my blog :-)
I will have to admit I have been so busy with house stuff and work the past couple of weeks I have not done much creating.
Sorry :-)
Yesterday I made a Gorgeous Match box to hold stickpins in a swap.  I still have 5 more to make.
Today...I designed a Picture Frame Card for my friend
Lacee...she is the Queen of Bella Creations.
She made me a fabulous Junk Journal..and is making me a recipe mini album!!  How sweet is that?  I will post photos when I get them.  Those of you who know me...know I only have boys..so I don't get to play with girl pictures much.  Today..I have a photo of Bella that I get to play with.  Yay!!
I used my silhouette sd to create some die cuts using some of my favorite Graphic Fairy Images...and a Gecko Galz butterfly image.   I am linking this up to Flutter by Wednesdays.  Their challenge called for die cuts or punch work..and of course a butterfly, fairy or angel.  So please visit by following the link..they have some great inspiration there!!   
Here is a photo of the before.
(you can see that most of my card is die cuts)
I am also linking this up to Passionately Artistic.  They are so sweet there...and some good recipes!!
The Frame and Tag are made with K & Company ancestry patterned paper.  I created this shaped frame card using my silhouette studio program.  All the items above and below were cut out by my Silhouette SD. 
OMG...isn't she just adorable :-)  I am going to be her new Aunt..LOL..because I need a girl :-)
I used Ranger distress ink in vintage photo to ink all the edges of the card, tag, and die cuts.  Art Glitter Designer Glue..and UHU..were my glues of choice.  
I just love how it turned out!!  It says...sweet as honey!  She is!! Just look at her :-)  As you can see I adhered all the flowers, bees, butterfly and text here.  I used a Dress it up button with some yarn behind it to create a dimensional flower as well as some May arts leaf trim.  
Of course it comes with a tag...because that is how I roll...LOL!
I made sure to center my photo when creating the card template..so my picture would be in the correct spot. 
There are those Gecko galz butterflies!! 
Of course...there is a journal spot on the other side..so Lacee can add some sweet little story.
I used another button..and some more yarn..and leaves.  I also used a perfect medium pen to draw around the edges of the scallops on the frame part..and some dotted butterfly trail on the tag....used gold embossing powder..to give it a little something extra.  Perfect pearls line the opening around her photo.
I hope this inspires you to create something beautiful today!!
Have an awesome day!!
