Textured Frame

Monday mornings are always inspirational for me as the Mojo Monday Sketch and the Simon Says Stamp and show challenge are posted.  I used the Mojo Monday sketch and the texture challenge today to come up with my card:


The papers are Memory Box, the bird and border dies are Memory Box as well.  The embossing folder is a new one for me from Sizzix and I love that it has the lovely framed opening. I embossed the paper and then painted over the embossed area with white paint and then added a sponged blue edges.  The rest of the papers and card base were also painted with white acrylic paint and sponged with Ranger Distress inks - Broken China.

This week over on the MB blog Outside the Box we are having a blog blitz showcasing the newest release for Memory Box. Head over and leave comments for a chance to win! 

Happy Monday to you!
