Inventory Challenge #44 - Frame

My card for Inventory Challenge #44 - Frame is the beautiful Lady Tilda.  She's looking very regal dressed for her portrait  in her red ball gown.  Edwin is a little tardy, as usual,  for escorting her to the ball.
To color Tilda I used Copics R29, 24, 22, B000, 01, for her dress; B21, 23, 24, YG63, 67 for her flower; E25, 31, 50 for her hair. 
The detail on her headband, lace at her neckline and at her skirt bottom were traced over with Clear Star Gelly Roll pen - love that pen!!

The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus.  The frame is Core'dinations The Chocolate Box.  After embossing in my Cuttlebug, I sanded the brown off so the pink would show through.  I added small rosy pink brads to the corners.
The oval behind Tilda is cut from an Antique Lace postcard I received as a thank you gift for an order.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia-licious.  The lacy leaves were cut with a Marianne Designs die.  The brown satin ribbon is from my stash.

The inside top is another piece of the paper from the front.  The brown ribbon goes around the front, under the Tilda image and ties in a bow.  The bud sprays are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The bottom is another piece of designer paper from Webster's Pages - Trend Setters.  This certainly looks like frames to me!

Thanks for stopping by and sitting for a bit.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my card.  Now hop on over to see what my teammates have done with their frames!

Good Morning Kathy! What a beautiful card. The background behind Tilda looks like pure lace. What a creative idea. I am going to have to start thinking out of the box. Such a pretty color combination too.

Good Morning Kathy, WOW, awesome card. Your coloring of lady Tilda is just beautiful, I love the sanding treatment you have given to the frame, gives such a beautiful vintage look, perfect with miss Tilda. Your flower cluster is totally lovely, I love theleaves so much! You decorated the inside very nicely. Love it.
