LIM #321 - use a frame

I was itching to use this window frame die so that was my first thought when I saw the challenge on Less is More to use a frame.
I was also thinking of using a stencil frame but it wasn't going to leave much white space, but while going through them I came across this sunrise stencil which I used and then die cut out to fit into my frame recess. I used a CC gold sparkle pen through the stencil after trying a few other things, but this seemed to give the best result. Then I added the die cut "Easter". Bonus is I now have an Easter card that I needed to make without thinking about it too much!

That's an incredibly arty sunrise and I bet it really glitters with the pen you used (think I have that stencil in my stash too). The ornate frame is perfect to draw your eye into the focal point. A really elegant design. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
