Guest DT Spot at Quirky Crafts Challenge

Hi Crafters,
A couple of weeks ago I won the challenge at Quirky Crafts and was then asked if I would like to do a guest spot on their next challenge. Well, of course I said 'Yes please'!
The challenge this time is called 'Quirky Frame It' - there are some great sponsors for the challenge so why not join in? Here is my project which I hope will give you some inspiration to enter the challenge yourself.
Isn't this a gorgeous image? It's from The East Wind Etsy shop. I coloured her using my Promarkers and she measured 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 cm. after I had printed her out.
The frame is constructed from Kraft card which I embossed with a wood-grain embossing folder and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I cut the four sections of the frame and curved them before adhering to the backing card to make it dimensional. Here is a side view so that hopefully you can see the dimension.
   I was really pleased that this turned out just as I had envisioned it in my head. This doesn't always happen, lol.
I would like to enter this in to some challenges...
Addicted To Stamps - #89 Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - #342 Anything But A Card
Creative Fingers - #52 Anything Goes
Scribble & Scrap - #29 Anything Goes

Hope you are all having a great day,
See you soon,
