Adventure Awaits You

I am in TOTAL love with my Sizzix Frame/Mailable die! It transforms a simple card into a work of art you can put on display!  This is the third project I've created using it. (see the others here and here).   For this project, I embossed the front using Wendy Vecchi Archival Tree Branch Ink and Wendy Vecchi Fern Green Embossing Powder.  
I adhered a piece of Paper Stash Wild Flower Vellum paper to a panel of Rustic Cream Cardstock and layered it behind the cut out frame area.  I added corners and framing using Idea-ology Industrious Stickers.   I added an Idea-ology  Remnant Rubs bird from Botanicals and Small Talk and Chit Chat Stickers inside the frame as well as some green and purple dew drops.
 I layered two die cut Tiny Tattered Flowers and leaves over a branch cut using a die from Holiday Greens.  The fox is a stamp and die from Papertrey Ink - Love You to Pieces: Fox and is popped up in the corner with foam dots.  I used a Sakura Glaze pen for the foxes' nose.  The sentiment is another Remnant Rub/Special Delivery.
and it all stands up so nicely with the die cut frame design - and then folds up to fit into a regular A2 envelope!  Love it!
I'm linking my sweet foxy inspirational frame/card to the following challenges:

I simply love the whole look of this Julia. You use of these colours for the woodland theme contrast wonderfully with the Industrious stickers. Frustratingly Sizzix don't sell that die in the UK - grrrr! Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x
