A "framed" picture

I'm here today with another grown up card - well, for me anyway!  It's a thank you card for Steve's Godfather who is in his 80's so I used one of the gorgeous Lili of the Valley art pads...

I think the bow makes it a bit girly but it looked too plain without it!  This gorgeous image is from the English Charm art pad - love these beautiful pre-coloured images.  I used some paper from the Promises paper pad and sentiment from the Handwritten Phrases set.  I also used my Hero Arts woodgrain stamp on some kraft cardstock to create the "photo frame".

I hope you are enjoying my grown up cards - I'm enjoying making them although I still much prefer my cutesy cards!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back next week some time - ttfn!
