Mixed Media Card Challenge June 2015 - Collage

Welcome to the 1st of June and to the brandy new Mixed Media Card Challenge for June -  Theme Collage with optional element: Frame
For my mixed media card today - I used a Cabinet Card Frame and a Found Relatives photo that I colorized using Ranger Distress Markers (so easy to do!).  
I added metal Mini Corners on two opposite corners, distressed the edges by sponging with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and also embossed some of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder.  I colored the Mirrored Stars, the Adornment Arrow and the Word Band with Latte Adirondack Alcohol Ink and Gold Mixative.
I added a birthday Flash Card and Big Chat and Small Talk stickers. I looped Natural Black/Cream Trimming through the Word Band  and adhered it over the photo with foam dots.  I added the Good Times (Alpha Parts/Framed) to the corner.  The shield is from Ephemera/Thrift Shop.
 I wanted my frame to stand up so the receiver could easily display this treasure (!) so I added an easel out of Grungeboard using my Alterations Small Easel die that I sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  I adhered it to the back of the frame with ScorTape.  The Cabinet Card measures about 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" so will need a larger envelope - or be hand delivered!
What kind of Mixed Media Collage will you create on your card?  We can't wait to see - you have until  June 28th to link it up here on the MMCC blog,  where you will also find some super inspiration from the rest of the Design Team!
