The "frame" around the purse is a chipboard piece I covered it with some of the Loves Me designer paper from the Winter Mini (ran a piece of the d/p through my Xyron, attached to the chipboard, then cut off excess with an Exacto knife). The other piece of d/p (on the right side of the card) is also from that same set of papers. The darker border around the inside of the frame is from the marker that I was using to color the edges of the chipboard after I had already adhered the d/p (note to self: ALWAYS color the edges of the chipboard BEFORE adhereing d/p, etc.). Since I had a bit of a slip as I was doing this, I had to make the border wider to cover my mistake. But, as I always say: there are no mistakes - only opportunities to create! The purse image was stamped with Close to Cocoa CRAFT ink, embossed with clear embossing powder, then lightly watercolored with pink.
