January magnolia-licious DT Project ( Frame Card)

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog. This is my entry to the Magnolia-licious Highlites January Challenge.
Sharon Caudle selected the frame card for the challenge. Boy this was sure a challenge for me! I'm really not sure if I did it exactly right but I made it work anyway! I would really encourage you to check out Sharons blog here. Sharon makes awesome cards and projects! Also please go over to the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog here and join in the fun! You can find Claudia Rosa tutorial on how to make a frame card here.
Please check out my card and let me know what you think. I would love to hear your comments and thank you so much for stopping by!

This is a view of the card laying down.

This view is of the card standing up.

Card details:
Design Paper is Basic Grey Lemonade
Stamps: Tilda picking flowers, Butterfly Background and Hanging Cat

The best place to purchase these stamps is from Diana at the Magnolia-licious Store here is a direct link. You will love shopping here Diana provides the best customer service and the best prices on Magnolia stamps! Please check out the store there is also a direct link on my side bar.

I colored my stamps with Copic markers love them.
I wrapped  my frame with this fuzzy crochet thread. I thought maybe it would hide my frame from how I attached the frame to my card base. lol  That is the part I'm not so sure I did correctly.

Thank you so much for taking a look.
