Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge – Scallops and Frames

                   Val and Vinnie Valentine

Here it is, another Tuesday, and time for a new MPS challenge.  This week the theme is to use scallops and frames.  This week I am using the cutsy image called Val and Vinnie Valentine Kissing Couple”.  I love it!  You can find this digi at Michelle’s Etsy Store.  Don’t forget to check out the MPS Challenge Blog, for some gorgeous inspirations by the other DT’s, and of course link up your card/project, you may just be the lucky winner of one of Michelle’s digital images!

So, I’ve got lots of layers going on here.  The image is colored with Copics, and then I made a frame with one of the Martha Stewart border and corner punch.  Once I had it punched out, I just cut the center out to make the frame.  The little hearts are the scraps from the EK Success border punch I used on the background purple card stock.  The Designer Paper is by Graphic 45.  The mini roses are made by Prima.  The ribbon is from my stash (also layered).
