Framed - in pink!!

Yes, a second post in as many days!! 
Welcome back, and thank you for visiting. 
I have made various cards recently with specific challenges in mind, and have not posted them in time, hence this post.
The challenge that this has been made for is over at Lily Pad Cards, and is the dimensional challenge.

  For the first time, I have made a frame using two Labels 14 Spellbinders dies,  then ran it through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and sponged the edges with Whispers Plum ink.

Next I cut a matching piece of acetate, and stamped an image from the Granny's Jewellery  stamp set by Layers of Color in Staz On ink.  On an identical piece of white card I stamped the same image again.

The back of the acetate was painted with twinkling H2Os, and also the ribbon on the card image.  The flowers on the paper copy had rhinestones added for colour, which adds a real depth to the colours.
  


The frame was mounted on the card base, which had a piece of marbled mauve dp on it, using foam mounting dots.

The final details were pale mauve ribbon and pink rhinestones.
