Hello peeps! Hope you are having a fabulous week. 
Several weeks ago, I was lucky enough to withe Sir Stampalot  "Magical Worlds" challenge,  and as well as receiving a parcel of crafting gorgeousness, I was thrilled to be asked to join the Team for a one-off  GDT spot as part of my prize.  
So peeps, here I am with my GDT card for September's  Stampalot challenge, and the theme is "IT'S A FRAME UP". 
Do pop over for all the details, and some fabulous DT inspiration.
My Card Recipe:-
White and Black cardstock - Stampin' Up.
Backing paper -  Springtime Vintage from SU.
Stamp - "New York Diva" from Hampton Art, softly coloured with Copics and Distress Inks.
The rectangular FRAME was created by cutting, and joining together, two Nestie Lacy Squares. 
The "brads" on the frame are made from black card, punched with a Woodware
small circle punch, shaped with an embossing tool and spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mist - Heirloom Gold.
Postcard stamp - Crafty Individuals, distressed with scissors and inks. 
Flower - TH Tattered Florals die.
Circular sentiment - HOTP.
All edges inked with Versafine Smokey Gray.
Black lace - from my ribbon box.
So lovely bloggers - start thinking about FRAMES (whatever your interpretation of that might be), and join in the fun!
I would like to enter my card into the following Challenge:
Fashionable Stamping - Ribbon or Lace.

Love to all, 
and a warm welcome to my newest followers - Hazel, Tracy and Suze.
