Papertake challenge/Mojo sketch challenge #74/Cupcake Challenge #27

The papertake challenge this week was 'a perfect match' so I made a card and altered a photoframe in matching colours - that brings me onto the cupcake challenge, which was to alter something. The sketch that I used for the card was the mojo sketch for this week. Well I say this week but I'm chasing my tail as usual and the challenges all change again tomorrow LOL! Anywhoo onto the deets of the card. I stamped my new (and gorgeous) angel anya by the greeting farm and coloured her with my pro-markers. I added highlights to her wings with a sakura stardust pen and stickles to her halo. The yummy dp is BG and the plain cs is from the papermill shop. The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment was done on my pc. The "21" was done with stickers by creative imaginations and the pearls I only bought last week but I threw away the packet and can't remember who they are by. For the frame, sorry I forgot to take a before photo but it was plain wood colour. I sanded the frame and then coloured it with my trusty pro-markers. I punched various flowers and stuck them together using the same materials as for the card. The sentiment stamp I used is by studio g. I also added a faux stitched edge with a fine line marker pen. To be honest I'm not that happy with how the frame turned out (actually I think it's rubbish) but I wasn't going to enter the challenge and then changed my mind last minute but hey at least I had a go. Sorry for the long post. Thanks for looking.
