Frame It! FCCB Challenge #166

Yeah for another fun week of challenges! And over at FCCB we are challenging you to Frame It!  I was excited for this challenge because I have never used a frame on a card!  And as I was trying to figure out if my mat should or should not show from outside under the frame, I thought, there is no right or wrong when you are creating - you can just do whatever!  I decided to leave the mat and just round the corners.  I used Elegant Edges for the frame and I used Serenade for my bird.  I recently added Serenade to my library of cartridges and I really love the flourish on this cart.  I added some bling to the frame and stamped a small sentiment "thinking of you".  The patterned paper is from a 6x6 paper pack from ColorBok (Wal-Mart).  I hope you join us this week over at FCCB!!!
