Birthday Box Frame

Good morning, hoping my post finds you well and surrounded by sunshine.  We have been promised loads of the stuff this week, looking out of my window, am not so sure lol!

Anyway, here as promised, is Amy's 21st birthday box frame.  I wanted to make her a special keepsake on such an important day.  Photos are pretty crappy, but that will soon change as I am going to treat myself to a camera tent this week, it has been long overdue lol!

There are a few photos as I wanted to get up close with each section, so I hope you have a cuppa handy.
Firstly, I have used a Cuttlebug alphabet on the letters, the size was perfect to fit the square. 

The flower and leaves next are from an old SU set that I got from a friend. I really love all of the images in this set, the bird and heart are the other two.

Here is the heart on an embossed square, the embossing folder was a bargain I picked up at Hobbycraft. The butterflys are all from a Sizzex die.

The leaves are from a Woodware frond punch, the numbers are Cuttlebug.

The bling is from Mei-flower and all of the cardstock is from Stamping Up.

The scroll stamp is an old gorgeous Magnolia one.

Lastly, flower and leaves as before.  All ink pads are Stamping Up to match the cardstock.

Amy was over the moon with the frame and I am reallyh pleased how it turned out.  We made another at my class last week, which I will share with you this week.  I will be very busy prepping all of the packs for the Little Claire Crawley & Kent days this weekend, have lots to do and can't wait!

Thanks for any comments left, they do mean alot!

Wow Heidi, this is just fabulous love it. The colour combo is just fab too. Gonna have to have a go at one of these. Got my light tent off ebay only paid £10 for it and it came with 4 different colour backgrounds. Got the smallest one which was 50cm sq and its loads big enough.
