Sweet Stampin' Challenge

It's time for a Team Fi challenge at Sweet Stampin' and what do we have for you today.... 

Out of the Frame
(so use a frame but leave a little of your image outside of it!)

And here is my card for today, which to be honest, started off life as something completely different! If you were around yesterday you'll have noticed I used a stepper card yesterday too (bought them in the craft shop on Thursday and felt the need to use them!)

We are sponsored today by Sew Sweet and of course our monthly sponsor is the lovely Joanna Sheen both of whom are offering fabby prizes. 

It started off life as Cass' birthday card but I didn't like the image I had used once I had done it so the image was removed and put on a completely different card (which I'll share tomorrow) and when I was round at Cass' I found the bottom bit of paper in her scrap box and used that instead. And so the card grew from there. I am more pleased with it now than I was orginally!
