totally tilda dt call

hello everyone! im a twin and i recently had a birthday.  so of course, i had to make a card for my twin brother.  here it is!  i hope you like it :)

i really love the way this one turned out!  my goal for the tilda and edwin stamp was to make it look like a photo in a picture frame.

you can tell a bit better here.  i used a sellbinders label to cut out the stamped image and then cut off where it embossed, and layered it on another dark brown spellbinders diecut of the same size to give the effect of it being matted in the picture frame.  at their house they have a bunch of those white swirly shabby chic kind of frames, so i used a some cereal box chip board and cut a larger die shape and embossed it and white washed it so the embossing would stick out and make it look like the frames they have. 

 here's a close up of the corner there's pearls swirls and flowers.

here's the inside of the card.  it's my brother and i on a river boat, proud as can be.  i used a websters pages to create the frame, and raised with puffy dots to go with the picture frame theme.

 im entering this card into the following challenges:
