My challenge for WCMD!

Hi all!
My challenge for WCMD is to create a card using a slide mount or a frame! I love using slide mounts and frames. It's an easy way to create a focal image!

Once you've made your card, post it on the justjohanna message board's gallery, your blog, or other on-line gallery and then share the link in the comment section of this post!

You may enter as many times as you'd like for my challenge.

You have until midnight PDT to complete the challenge and post the link to your card.

Participants in this challenge will be entered into a drawing for a limited edition "Flying Al on Earth" rubber stamp. You can see him here!

If you have already won "Flying Al on Earth", then the 2nd prize will be a "Flying Al with Stars" rubber stamp, which is one of my favorites! He's a collectible, rare stamp because he's not available for purchase! If you have already won two prizes, then the 3rd prize will be a Free Shipping Coupon. If you have already won three prizes, then another winner will be selected.

Additionally, you will be entered into justjohanna's grand prize drawing of the following ...

One Grand Prize of $250 justjohanna shopping spree! Wow!

One $50 justjohanna shopping spree.

Here are two of my cards using slide mounts. The first card is a 4x4 that uses a cardboard slide mount that was sponged with Liquid Chalk ink, heat set, responged with more of the same color ink, and heat set again. Then I took some crumpled up plastic wrap and used that to pounce the same ink onto the slide mount, and yes, heat set again. Then I stamped the tiny tea cup onto it.

The big cup was stamped and colored using Prismacolors. I mounted the image inside the slide mount, added a ribbon, and a button, and mounted the slide mount onto Flair's wonderful coffee paper!

The "Feeling Blue?" card uses a large honkin' slide mount that I covered with Chatterbox patterned paper. The peacock was stamped using blue VersaFine and colored with Prismacolors.

The felt flower was cut using my Big Kick machine. I run a piece of cardstock through my Xyron machine, adhere the felt, and then cut it with the Big Kick. The cardstock gives the felt a bit more "body", so it doesn't shred.

This card fills a bunch of different challenges from my team mates! It's monochromatic, uses a felt flower, has faux stitching, and has bling! Yahoo.

I can't wait to see what you all do with slide mounts and/or frames. Have fun!
