Until You Called Me Grandma!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!! 

My Mom asked me to make a card for my Aunt, who just recently became a Grandma, using this gorgeous sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Grandparents.  I decided that instead of a card, I would create a frame for her.

I started with a frame from Michaels that I painted with white acrylic paint.  After painting it, I sponged the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to soften it a bit.  

I cut squares of paper using the Lavender paper pad from My Minds Eye.  I sponged the edges of them as well and then stitched them together with my Janome Sew Mini.

I used another piece of patterned  paper and stamped the sentiment.  I then cut it out with the Designer Label 3 STAX Die-Namics.  I layered it with a piece of Kraft cardstock cut with a larger die from this set and then added a butterfly cut from corrugated cardboard using the Butterflies Die-Namics.

I cut a trio roses using the Large Rolled Rose Die-Namics and I used My Favorite Felt in Vintage Blue, Puff Cloud White (both on sale!) and Bubblegum!  I layered them over a kraft panel cut with the Large Fancy Flourish Die-Namics.  I added a few leaves cut with the Royal Leaves Die-Namics cut from Jellybean Green Cardstock.  I sprayed the entire frame with some silver glitz spray for a really like sparkle.

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
