Allsorts challenge week 372 - Add a frame

Good Morning week 372 here at Allsorts and it is Annie's turn to host the challenge and she has chosen the theme of add a frame.

We have a lovely prize for you this week and this is it...
A lovely photo album.
I love the way the ribbon covers up part of the age, it could be 50 or 60 a very subtle way of disguising the decade.

Here is my take on the challenge.
I decided that because of the rather large image to keep the rest of the card white.
Image is Penny Black - Slapstick - Freshly Cut
Coloured with Promarkers
Sentiments Craftwork Cards
Embossing folder - Crafts Too.
In hindsight  I wish I had used sticky pads on the frame to give it a bit of a lift.
Too many leaves on this image I think, spoils it.

Thanks for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

This is such a pretty card - I like those blue flowers.

Lovely soft blues and fantastic work on the translucence of the vase holding these pretty blue flowers. I like the way you've handled the frame..it's pretty, but allows the flowers to shine. TFS & Hugs

Great flower image but I agree about the leaves...way too many in my opinion!

You have made a lovely card. I like your choice of the white embossed frame. It suits this image as you say.

This is beautiful Kath.. it's a fab image and looks good in the frame. Great idea to keep the frame white and add the embossing for interest!
