Speedy Fox & Friends 175 - Frame it

The challenge that Pat has given us at Speedy Fox & Friends for today is "frame it."  Be sure and hop over to Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s challenge blog and check out the cards/projects of the Design Team.  If you have time, click on the links and hop over to their blogs and leave a little love!  So, this is an easy peasy challenge - right?!  Remember, there is always a prize to the winner of the challenge and this week, it is Lilies of the Valley.

If you notice the panel the fish is setting on - that panel was made with my sweet friend - and we were putting distress ink on glossy cardstock and blowing through a straw to create backgrounds and let me just say we had a lot of laughs!

Hope to see you at the challenge!!
