Framed challenge

I promised a card this evening, and here it is. This is the card I made with the supplies a few of us from SCS send to each other each month. We were to use the clear frame from Making Memories. I combined two challenges this week. SCS's Featured stamper Stamping Pam, and our CCEE Challenge (Cheers and Challenges Eager Eight) We challenge each other every Monday with a variety of different things. I will always have a card uploaded either Sun. evening or Monday morning for this. Here's Pam's card that I cased: Fall Flowers
Changes: Colors, images, dp, moved the sentiment up to a buckle, circle to square, added scallops to the bottom, and moved my bottom panel up a bit.

Thanks Pam for the inspiration!! I really enjoyed looking through your awesome gallery!!

Now for the deets!!

Main image: Stamped image with Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink onto Papertrey White CS, colored with copics. Glued the frame to peach Bazzill CS with Diamond stickles and framed with Nestabilites square diecut.

The red panel was created by painting Ranger Fired Brick Distress Crackle paint. I painted it on fairly thick so the cracks would show more. It's awesome stuff, and easy to use. The brush is included with the jar. It's connected to the inside lid, so you don't need to clean a separate brush. I then rubbed Ranger Walnut distress ink over it to make the crack stand out a bit more. I think it looks a bit like aged leather!!

The oval sentiment was cut out with oval nestabilities, and all the panels were ink distressed with Ranger Tea Dye Distress ink....sorry, forgot to include that one in the picture. The scallops were created with Stampin' Up's slit punch, and the velvet ribbon is threaded through the horizontal slot punched CS. All panels are raised with Scotch dimensional tape. The scallops were pierced using Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick.
Oh, and the inside says....are the perfect blend. Thanks for stopping and taking a look!!

Just had to come and tell you how much I enjoyed this card when I saw it on Laurie's blog. She is so fortunate you sent her this as a RAK. What a lovely card, the warm colors bring out the friends and coffee theme. One of her favorite subjects. Love eveything about the card. Nice of you to share. Linda (aka Laurie's Mom)
