Good Wednesday morning.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge to make a card with a framed opening with the main focal point on the inside of the card.

Before I start I want to announce the winner of my Susan Tierney-Cockburn Rose set blog candy.

I look forward to seeing your blog every time you post. Your flowers are outstanding. Would love to win the rose or the dogwood or the daisy or any of the others. I have the tiny lily and that is the extent of my collection. Just ordered pan pastels to color with, now I just need the dies!

I die cut the frame layer using Sizzix Border, Label, Medallion and Key set and created a double matted frame opening using Spellbinders Classic Ovals. I applied versa to the inner oval frame with my versa marker and embossed with gold embossing powder. I cut the frame opening on the card base and attached the the frame using mounting tape.

I cut the My Favorite Things Rolled Rose and Leafy Flourish and applied versa marker around the edges and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I assembled the rose, rolled back the petals, formed the leaves with my molding pad and large stylus and attached to the inside card base using glossy accents.

I wanted the rose and foliage to have touches embossed gold to match the frame.  I really like how this turned out even though it was a strange card to get a good photograph of in the standing position. You can check out my rolled rose petal tutorial to see photos of how I turn back the petals on my rolled roses.
