Framed Vase under Acetate

I tied together two challenges with this card- TMITA and JUGS.
At There's Magic in the Air, Carol challenged us to showcase an image within a frame on your project. They have an image "Deco Flower Vase 2" to download  from Paper Cupcakes that we can use or one of your choice. 
I decided to add some acetate to my frame and this picks up on the technique challenge from Lisa at Just Us Girls -  using acetate on your card by making a clear card or using it as an accent.
I printed and sized the digital image, paper pieced the vase, and colored the rest with Copics.  Sponged the image. I cut my frame from gold CS and ran through an EF. Thinking in hindsight - I would not emboss the frame next time because it does distort the size a bit and it did not frame my image exactly as I planned.  Or I could cut the image a little larger or the same size as frame.  But I just worked with that and used the image( as I had already cut it) and the frame over the patterned mat with a edge showing between the two layers. I attached the frame to the acetate with Glossy Accents and attached to the mat with scor-tape.  Made my own corner embellishments by punching out dots of the embossed Gold CS and double layered the dots with glue dots. Added a gold twine bow and sticker sentiment to finish.

Other details:
K&Co patterned Papers, GKD Gold CS, White Base Card
Used Tom Holtz Distress Ink Tead Dye on edges of Mat and Base Card
Other ink used: SU So Saffron
                         Copics YR 12, 14, Y17
SRM Sticker for Sentiment
Spellbinders Labels 4

Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
