A Botanical Photo Frame Card

Good morning,
Heidi here to share my first of four projects, using a beautiful set from Craftwork Cards called 'Botanica'.  You can purchase this gorgeous set of papers and die-cuts from Ali's website HERE, at the special price of £15.00 for March only or while stocks last.
Over the next four Monday's, I will be sharing a new project using this set.

 Firstly, here is a Photo Frame Card that I have made.  These cards are great to give as gifts or lovely as special frames to brighten up a dull corner or bookcase.  I have also decorated the inside of the card using the wonderful papers and die-cut flowers and tags.

Here is the card without photo
