Cards in Envy - Frame it

Welcome to the first Cards in Envy challenge of October. Our theme is 'Frame It'. We want to see you use a frame on your card. Square, rectangle, circle, oval, as long as it frames something.
Since I'm a huge shutterbug, the first thing that popped into my head was to use a filmstrip die cut as the frame. The cute little Lawn Fawn monsters were perfect to add to my frames and I love the bright and vibrant colors for them.

Background paper - Clever Handmade by Heidi Kress
Monster stamps - Lawn Fawn
Sentiment stamp - My Favorite Things
Film strip die cut - The Stamps of Life
Arrow die cuts - Little B
Markers - Copic
Ink - Memento and Versafine
Glossy Accents

I hope you have time to play with us over at Cards in Envy. Just remember, cards need to be flat enough to mail, so no thicker than 1/4".

Some of my favorite and commonly used crafting tools:
Tonic Studios guillotine paper trimmer
Scotch ATG (Advanced Tape Glider) glue gun
Sizzix BIGkick die cut machine
We R Memory Keepers brad setter and piercing tool
We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Scotch Mounting Tape 3/4"
Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive liquid glue
MISTI stamping tool
Accent Opaque Digital 100# cover weight paper for card bases
