You've been framed - Allsorts DT challenge 117

Morning everyone,
I'm here to show you my DT card for
who have a challenge this week of 
'You've been framed'
 so be sure to include a frame somewhere on your card or project.
We are sponsored by Sir Stampalot this time who are offering the winner 2 Molly Blooms stamps!!

I couldn't wait to ink up my new Tennis Tilda and the frame around her sets her off a treat! This is the first time I've ever done a black and white card, and colouring an image just using different shades of black was fun, I don't know what I was so worried about!
I wanted to use the mesh for a tennis net but didn't want to obscure my Tilda image so decided to tear it in two and make it look like she blasted the ball right through it!


This is as flat as the card would fold closed because of the big bow, but you can see the white embossed panels better using the stitch stamp all the way round and black inked to edge them. I handmade the flower using Nestie Blossoms, something I very rarely do now as I tend to favour bought flowers.
