Simon Says - Frame It

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral Large and Alphanumeric Shadow Lower Thinlits for my Hello Friend Slimline card and added Idea-ology Entomology Collage Paper circle frames to the background die-cut with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tiles Circle Thinlits.

I selected two tags from my backgrounds box, created by applying Ranger Texture Paste through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Bouquet and Flourish Layering Stencils and sprayed with Seedless Preserves. Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Shabby Shutters Distress Spray Stains.
I die-cut the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Large Floral Thinlits from the tags and black card from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Neutrals KraftStock pack.
I covered white card with Idea-ology Entomology Collage Paper and used Tim Holtz Stacked Tiles Circle Thinlits to create the circle frames. If you don't have these, any nesting circle dies will do (see link below)
I trimmed black card from the Neutral KraftStock Stack to 3" x 8", added a torn strip of the Entomology Collage Paper and the sentiment die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Shadow Lower Thinlits.
I fixed the circle frames and the flowers and leaves in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte and 3D foam pads to add extra dimension
I fixed an extra circle frame and the inner section in place and added an Idea-ology Sentiments Label Sticker to complete the sentiment.
To finish I matted the panel on to a 3.1/4" x 8.1/4" White Slimline card.
