Leafy Frames Birthday

The newest Simon Says Stamp monthly kit has these lovely leafy frames. I wasn’t sure how I was going to like them, but they make a pretty card. I stamped it with VersaMark on vellum and heat embossed with silver. I was going to have it be an entire vellum card front, but that didn’t work out and improvised by adding it to a blue rectangle and using rhinestones to hid the glue.
