Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge

I am a big fan of Ellen Hutson, LLC ... big.  I love her shop, designers, The Classroom, and challenges - all of them - but often have the best time in The Mix Up challenge finding fun, and pun-y new ways to use the Ellen Hutson by Julie Ebersole sets.  Like this one, or this.

As I'm browsing on Instagram, I see Ellen's Calling all Artists call to action ... I cannot help myself, I must at least try!!

So, Ellen and team, here is my card to throw in the ring ... well ... it's a card in a frame to throw in the ring!!

 
A quick and easy [but for a special someone] gift from a shadow box frame, using Altenew's Way Too Sweet on the inside,  and Julie's sweet Hello from
 Mondo Magnolia on the outside!
 
 
The toughest part of this fun project was keeping my reflection out of the photo - that you do NOT want to see!
 
Ellen, I do hope you like it!  It sure made me smile to make it for you ...

Well, I'm throwing my vote in the ring for you Michele!! This card is fabulous!!! I love how you made it look like it was in a frame. So cooling, those ice creams looks so good and would taste really good right about now since it is so humid! lol You have a winner with this one my friend! Hugs Brenda

Oh my lusciousness, this is just scrumptious, Michele ... love the soft white embossing with the pops of colour on those ice cream lollies ... and the framing takes it beyond brilliant! Another top notch production, my friend ... I'm thinking you'll definitely get that call! Hugs, Anita :)

How to use a 'sweet die'. Use it 5 times! Brilliant, gorgeous, adorable card within a frame. (taking notes on your brilliance!)

Well my goodness! HOW ADORABLE IS THIS! The card itself rocks my world! And then you framed it? GENIUS! LOVE!
