Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #30: Frame/Windows

My new frills border arrived (thanks, Nilda!!!) from winning Challenge #23 at The Cuttlebug Spot last month. And speaking of The Cuttlebug Spot, this week's challenge is to make projects that have a window or a frame. I chose to stamp and emboss a frame stamp by Magenta, then I used my ruler and xacto knife to cut the center square from the frame. I used all Stampin' Up! cardstock and markers. I used my Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls to emboss the So Saffron cardstock.
My inks and cardstock: Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Regal Rose, Ruby Red, So Saffron, and Whisper White. Iusually only use 3 colors on a card, but I like these colors together.
I used Stampin' Up! dimensionals to pop up the frame.

The elements of this card really bring it together: squares, embossing, and colors. Each square stands on its own. Beautiful card and one worth remembering.
