The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your frame makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, I think the time as come for me to write down what I used when I make the card.

Now lets see what I used a Blue Oxide Background to start with, that's easy I also make several and keep them to one side till I need one. I'm guessing I've used Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and possibly Broken China but I'm wondering if it was Mermaid Lagoon.

I cut the Memory Box Cheery Flower Collage in white card, then Green Apple card and some Doll Pink card. A few snip and I have stem and leaves and some pink flowe heads. The centres are made with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Snowflakes and the white centres when I cut out the main image, they fell out but managed to save them.

I wondered if the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle would cut frame round the flowers but you can see if made a nice double frame instead. I also used the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Shapes frame to give a nice stitched border.

I used my favourite sentiment stamps at the moment Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages. I had always planned to use Simon Says Stamp Flickering Butterflies but the tiny one by the y of Birthday is hiding a dirty mark. Most rubbed off with a clean eraser except one stubborn dot and my tiny butterfly hides it.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Gorgeous card Debby :-) the floral frame is so pretty and I love the background 💗
As for remembering supplies, I have started to pop them straight into a draft post with a quick list, not only was I forgetting what supplies I had used, but also where I had saved cards on my computer 😂
