Make It Monday #195: 2014 A la Carte


It is no secret I am a HUGE Dawn McVey fan.She has an amazing, colorful style that I love to emulate! 
What is not to like about her! 
I really wanted to try this technique the week it was posted but I was so busy with my Christmas sales, I just didn't have time. By the way. Due to the generosity of MANY women, I donated $4500 to missions at my church to dig fresh water wells in Malawi, Africa!


My card:

I really LOVE this technique! I did the frame where the edges were not mitered. 
I can see doing this a lot. It was really quick and adds a BIG punch.
I would have needed more flowers if not for the frame!

This one is for my Mothers 90th Birthday.
My sister Pat *Hi Pat! * is organizing a card shower.
The goal is 90 cards. My family of 5 will send 5!

Thanks Dawn for a fun, EASY MIM!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
