Draggy's All Framed Up

Hi Lou here with Trace's M4M creation for this week.... this gorgeous Draggy frame. Unfortunately Trace's internet is down and has been all week so she emailed this to me from her work to post..... hmmmm lucky I get paid in sweet sweet stampin goodies and quality

The frame was a cheapy one she found in a discount store and she has covered it with patterned paper, she has also used a chipboard flourish in the corner and her new butterfly punch. She has coloured Draggy with copics of course and attached him with foam mounts.

Hope you will all join me in wishing Trace a speedy recovery from her internet issues.
