Happy Ever After

Good evening everyone

A bit of a busy afternoon and evening at work today, realised that I need to employ an extra colleague to help with the Friday night pizza rush.

Anyway, I did manage to do a quick make this morning.  I have had this frame for a few months and although I always knew what I was going to put in it, I haven't got round to it until now.

I have started with a photo frame with a mount inside for three 4" x 6" photographs.  I have then taken three pieces of white card stock and run it through a Spellbinders Hearts embossing folder and using a red pigment ink pad, I have coloured around the edges of each piece of embossed card.  These have then been stuck to the mount board with double sided tape.

Using the Spellbinders Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight die set, I have cut out one large and two of the next size down from white card stock and again soften the edges with the same red pigment ink pad.  The large one has then been stuck in the right hand mount and the smaller ones in the two remaining mounts.

The digital stamp is called You and Me from Tiddly Inks.  I have coloured them using ProMarkers, cut them out and layered them onto the centre of the large die cut.

Using the Memory Box Cream Puff Heart die, I have cut out two and coloured using the same red pigment ink pad.  I have then cut out two swans from white card stock backed with double sided adhesive, using the Memory Box Gentle Swan die.  These have then been covered with a white glitter.  The hearts and the swans have layered onto the centre mount.

I have printed out the sentiment "Happy Ever After Starts Here" and layered this onto the left hand mount.

To finish, I have added three flat back pearls to the top left hand side and three to the bottom right hand side of the frame.

I are entering this frame into the following challenges:
