A touch of Frantage

A very brief post from me today as there is a queue for the computer!  I just wanted to show my DT piece for this week's Midweek Magnolias theme which is Anything Goes, but with the option of adding a Vintage look or Frantage - I went for the Frantage because I'm enjoying a great romance with it at the moment - you could call it a Fr-omance......grooooooaaaan!
Anyway, the girls have come up with yet more amazing inspirational samples so please do go check them out.  Here is my offering for this week's theme:
I've only ever done one criss-cross card before, but our lovely Teresa makes them a lot and seeing her recent beautiful pieces has inspired me to have another go.  Here's the insert:
It's really difficult to see on the photograph but I tried something new this week.  Tilda has been embossed to give her some shape and dimension - you have to trust me when I say this looks more effective in real life.
I also want to show this off at Magnolia-licious Challenges too as they have a Butterflies theme this week, and this gave me the opportunity to use my newly acquired butterfly edge, a die that I have uuuummed and aaaahhed over for such a long time, then I took the plunge last weekend - expect to see it some more! LOL!
Well that's my lot for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  If you have time, please pay my lovely teamies a visit too as they have worked their socks off once more!
Have a great week and see you soon! :o) xxx
