Card Parrot Tulip

Hey all! Happy Friday!  I thought I would post a card today.


I used Parrot Tulip Digi  coloured with pencils/OMS and the Ornate Pearl Frame cutting file set embellished with a Viva pearl pen.  As usual, all my card elements started with white card stock base.  The frame pieces were sponged with Spun Sugar and Age Mahogany distress inks. I don't know how I would survive without those distress inks - Did you see the new summer colours?  Oh my .. had to get them!  waiting for pre-orders to ship sigh!

Have a great weekend!

:)* Fred

Sponsoring: Bearly Mine Challenges and a Freebie!

Hi All!

Today Fred She Said is sponsoring the Bearly Mine Challenge Blog, featuring Donna's wonderful digital papers.

Some of the Fred She Said DT are playing along.  The THEME is FLOWERS :)  I thought I would take  a crack at it:

.

I used Donna's FSS/BMD Summer's Roses Paper Set  which can also be found at Donna's store.  The flower and leaves are made from the Build a Floral Spray Digital Cutting File Set.

The Digital Freebie I have today is a TEMPLATE for the rectangular punched frame I used on the card above.  What this is, is a rectangular template ( also cutting files ) with a matted opening in the center.  It is sized perfectly for use with the Martha Stewart's Punch Around The Page punches.  I have included a printable PDF and cutting files in  SVG/GSD/DXF/Silhouette/Vector PDF.  You need the punches though to use with the template!  You can find the FREEBIE HERE at my 4shared.

NOTE:  4shared now requires you to register and log in to download anything hosted there.  The registration is FREE.  Sorry about the hassle of that but IT IS free and I haven't found a suitable free hoster and I would have ALOT of files to move!

REMINDER:  Fred She Said DT Showcase CONTEST is still on ;)  with a $25 GC prize to a lucky commenter!

Have a great day!

:)* Fred
