Hey there, *edited* I originally had this scheduled to post over the holiday weekend while hubby and I were away camping in the rain...but for some reason, it didn't publish.  D'oh!  Here it is...better late than never!

My mom's birthday is in June so I wanted to have a card ready early (for once!).  I absolutely LOVE coloring the Taylored Expressions bouquets!  This is the Calla Lily Bouquet and it's teamed up with several of the TE dies.  It's on the same line as the out-of-the-box with a Nestie technique...but it's a little different using the Instant Photo Frames die.  The bouquet was stamped on a piece of Neenah then sized to fit the photo frame.  I cut around the flowers like with the out-of-the-box technique then fitted the frame around them...pulling the flowers forward and pushing the background behind the photo frame.  The ribbon is seam binding that was died to match the vase and the rhinestones were colored with BG72.  I think this card turned out very elegant...hope she likes it!
